The weight (W) of an object is the product of its mass (m) in kilograms and g, the acceleration due to gravity in meters/second2. If the acceleration due to gravity is 9.8 meters/second2, find the corresponding weights for these masses. mass in kilograms = {22.1, 33.5, 41.3, 59.2, 78} The weights (in newtons) for the given masses are

    \[W = m \times g\] so what's the problem herre?

    They have given you the mass, and the gravity which is 9.8 m/s^2

    Paying attention to the units, you can see Newton's is the product of kg multiplied by m/s^2. \[W = m \times g = kg \times \frac{ m }{ s^2 } = N\]

    We don't give direct answers here, I'm trying to help you understand the concept so you can do it on your own.

    You want weight in newtons so just multiply each of your masses by gravity

    \[W_1 = 22.1 \times 9.8 = ...\] etc for all your weights

    where the subscript 1 represents your first weight using first mass
