What is the relationship between the weight (N) vs mass (g)?

Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution



I am suppose to predict the relationship between the weight vs mass. I'm guessing it's directly proportional but I can't explain why in simple terms? I graphed it and it came out a straight line so I know I am right but I don't understand why it's directly proportional can someone explain in simple terms as I am only in Physics 11?

Well, why did you guess that it's proportional in the first place?

Weight is just the force of gravity pulling downward on an object. Do you know the relationship between force and mass?
