**Compare Mass and Weight:**The comparison between Mass and Weight of any component can be explained in this article.

## Compare Mass and Weight:

**Mass of the body:**

- Mass of the body does not vary from place to place and it is not affected by the gravitational force.
- It is represented by “m”.
**Unit of mass “m”**=Grams

**Weight of the body:**

- Weight of a body varies from place to place and depends on the acceleration due to gravity existing at that place.
- It is represented by “W”.
- The formula for weight of the body is

W=m/g

- If “g” is positive then the sign of “W” cannot changes whereas
- If “g” is negative then the sign of “W” changes.

So,this is the main difference between mass and weight of any body.

**Unit of weight** “W”=mg=Kg*(m/s2)

Therefore,Unit if weight =**Newton**
