Question

If the mass of a body is 5kg, its weight on the surface of the earth would be

___ N (newton). (g=9.8m/s2)


Solution

Weight on the surface of the earth is the measure of the force acting on the body because of acceleration due to gravity.

If we have a body of mass 5 kg and the acceleration due to gravity as 9.8m/s2

weight = mass x acceleration

weight = 5 x 9.8 = 49 N
