Expert Answer:

Weight: The force with which an object is attracted towards the earth is the weight of that object. 
            It is written as W = m × g.
            The SI unit of weight is newton (N).
 
Work: Work done in moving a body is equal to the product of force exerted on the body and the distance moved by the body in the direction of force.
          It is written as W = Force × Distance.
          The SI unit of work is newton metre (N m) or joule (J).
