The physical balance measures the weight of an object.
The force exerted on the mass of the body by gravity is measured by weight. Weight is a localized interpretation of an object’s mass, while mass refers to the object’s universal value. Since weight is the product of gravity, we use the formula to explain is,
W = mg
m = Mass
g = Acceleration due to gravity at that particular location.
The S.I. unit of weight is newton.
