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

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