## kym02 one year ago how do you convert mass in grams to newtons?

1. nincompoop

first, what are the relationships of the two?

2. prakharluv

1 gram (g) =0.0098 newtons (N)

3. ParthKohli

$F = \cdots$

4. UnkleRhaukus

are you on earth?

grams measure mass newtons measure force the quantities have different dimensions $$[m]=[\text {kg}]=[\text M]$$ mass is measured in kilograms and has a base dimension of mass $\qquad\qquad [F]=[\text N]=[\text{kg}~\text m~\text s^{-2}]=[\text{M L T}^{-2}]$ force is measured in newtons which have base dimensions of mass times length divided by time squared the relationship between them $F[\text N]=m[\text{kg}]a[\text m~\text s^{-2}]$ where $$a$$ is acceleration measured in meters per second per second on earth the Acceleration is due to earths gravitational field $a=g\sim9.8 [m~s^{-2}]$
