\[\mathsf{W = mg}\]So, \(\mathsf{50 = 5 \times 10 }\)
I have normally seen in questions that they assume a person's mass to be \(60\) kg. So would their weight be \(600\) kg? Impossibru!
You should say weight is 50 newtons, and it also depends on the gravity, whether you're on earth or mars etc.

I'm assuming it to be on Earth.
weight is in newtons, they should've written it 600 N, not 600 kg, lol
So my weight is \(50 ~ \rm kg ~ ms^{-2}\), correct?
yeah if that's your weight..
Approximately, yeah.
when u say ur weight is 50kgm/s u mean to say that ur mass is 5 kgs....nd i don think u mean u to say that when u stand on a weighing machine the scale show 5 kg!!
@rutvi There's a misconception on the word "weight" used in our daily lives and "weight" in physics. In physics weight is in newtons and in normal situation we use weight as in kilograms, rather than saying mass.
@sam i very well know the difference between weight nd mass in physics nd day to day life also...thats y i m telling that 50kgm/s is a very absurd weight of a grown person
Yes and its kg m/s^2 :D
