Pounds to Kilograms

    There is often a misunderstanding of these terms. Please explain the difference between these terms and discuss the terms mass, force, Newton, slug and and acceleration due to gravity as they relate to pounds and kilogram.

    For starters, can you tell us how much force an object of m kilograms exerts on a tabletop when sitting still?
