We cannot entertain multiple question of this type, please post each question individually and let us know where you are getting stuck so that we would be able to explain things better.

Mass is the amount a matter contained in a body , it's a constant quantity. Its SI unit is kg.Can be measured using beam balance.

weight depends on the value of acceleration due to gravity at a place. Mathematically ,

weight = mass x acceleration due to gravity

It can vary from place to place. it's SI unit is newton. Can be measured using spring balance.
