Though the terms

Mass and weight are related to the formula:

ie: weight = Force = (mass) x (acceleration of gravity)

so, if gravity force is increase then weight will also increase. (Directly proportional)

If you remember the formula then you can easily write the below statements in exams.

#1. The weight of an object = force of gravity felt by that object

but

the mass of an object is the amount of molecules the object has

#2. An object's weight depends on the pull of the gravitating object(like Earth)

but

the object's mass is independent of the gravity.

#3. weight measured in Newtons(N) and mass measured in kilograms(kg).

**weight**and**mass**are used interchangeably in common language, in science there is a difference between the two terms.Mass and weight are related to the formula:

**W = F= mg**ie: weight = Force = (mass) x (acceleration of gravity)

so, if gravity force is increase then weight will also increase. (Directly proportional)
