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..

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

wait so.. how to get 1N=1/g kgweight?

Units: SI unit: Newton (N). A net force of 1 N causes a mass of 1 kg to accelerate at 1 ms2. 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..
