Expert Answer
         Weight
  • Weight is the measurement of the gravitational pull acting on the concerned body.
  • It may vary as per the positioning of the body as the gravitational force or pull also varies accordingly.
  • The SI unit of weight is Newton
  • For e.g.  A body on Moon's surface weighs one sixth of the same on the Earth.

          Mass

  • Mass is the measurement of the exact amount of matter which a body contains.
  • Thus the value of mass for a body remains same irrespective of the position at which the body is placed.
  • The SI unit of mass is kilogram (Kg)
