F = Ma
M = mass = Kg
a = acceleration = m/s2
therefore, F = Kg * m/s2 = N
N = newton

weight is just another force..which we apply on ground ..
and thus is the definiton..

but whats kilogram weight??
1kgweight=gN 1N=1/g kg weight

F = Ma
assume, F = 1N and M = 1Kg
Therefore,
1 N = 9.81 Kg/ m2

oh so you just use f=ma F=1N, a=g and m=1kg

Units:
SI unit: Newton (N). A net force of 1 N causes a mass of 1 kg to accelerate at 1 ms-2.
Alternative unit: Kilogram weight (kg wt). A force of 1 kg wt is the force exerted by gravity on a mass of 1 kg.
1
Conversion of units: 1 kg wt = g N, 1 N = 1/g kg wt .

it is simply equal to the magnitude of the force exerted by one kg of mass in a 9.8 ms^-2 gravitational field(on earth)
1KgF = 9.80665 N
and F and weight are congruent..
