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

1. nincompoop Group Title

first, what are the relationships of the two?

2. prakharluv Group Title

1 gram (g) =0.0098 newtons (N)

3. ParthKohli Group Title

$F = \cdots$

4. UnkleRhaukus Group Title

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 $a=g\sim9.8 [m~s^{-2}]$
