 # Question: Can You Convert Weight To Mass?

## How do you convert to mass?

There is no direct way to convert from the mass of one substance to the mass of another.

To convert from one mass (substance A) to another mass (substance B), you must convert the mass of A first to moles, then use the mole-to-mole conversion factor (B/A), then convert the mole amount of B back to grams of B..

## Do mass and weight have same dimensions?

No. Mass is a base unit and acts as it’s own dimension. The dimensional formula for mass is simply . Weight is a force.

## Why is centripetal force equal to weight?

There is no reason for the centripetal force to be greater or less than the weight of the ball. It is the tension in the string which must be greater than the weight of the ball.

## How much is your true weight if the scale shows 100 kg?

The correct unit for force is the Newton (=1 kg·m/s2) which is abbreviated N. So a 100 kg mass really weighs about 980 Newtons on Earth.

## What is an example of mass and weight?

The mass of an object will never change, but the weight of an item can change based on its location. For example, you may weigh 100 pounds on Earth, but in outer space you would be weightless. However, you will always have the same mass on Earth as you have in outer space.

## What is the difference between mass and volume?

Mass is how much stuff something is made of. Volume is how much space an object takes up.

## What has size and shape but no weight?

Everything that is in zero gravity will have size and shape but no weight.

## What is the standard unit for mass?

kilogramThe SI unit of mass is the kilogram (kg). In science and technology, the weight of a body in a particular reference frame is defined as the force that gives the body an acceleration equal to the local acceleration of free fall in that reference frame.

## How do you calculate mass from weight?

To find an object’s mass using its weight, the formula is Mass equals Weight divided by the Acceleration of Gravity (M = W ÷ G). Convert the weight measured in pounds to the equivalent in Newtons.

## Is weight equivalent to mass?

In common usage, the mass of an object is often referred to as its weight, though these are in fact different concepts and quantities. In scientific contexts, mass is the amount of “matter” in an object (though “matter” may be difficult to define), whereas weight is the force exerted on an object by gravity.

## What is the formula of weight calculation?

WEIGHT (KGS ) = WIDTH X WIDTH X 0.00000785 X LENGTH. Example : A Square of size 25mm and length 1 metre then the weight shall be. WEIGHT (KGS ) = 3.14 X 0.00000785 X ((diameter / 2)X( diameter / 2)) X LENGTH. Example : A Round of 20mm diameter and length 1 metre then the weight shall be.

## What is more likely an object with 0 or 0 weight?

It is more likely for an object to have a weight of zero because the weight is the measure of the gravitational force on an object. It is possible to weigh nearly 0 in outer space. Matter, however, is the measure of matter in an object. More or less it can get down to how many atoms in the object.
