# Is there any difference between mass and weight

Asked by Smita 7th September 2015, 6:31 PM

Hi,

Mass:The mass of a body is the quantity of matter contained in it. The SI unit is kilogram. The mass of the body is constant and does not change from place to place.

Weight: The force with which an object is attracted towards the earth is the weight of that object.

It is written as . Its unit is newton (N).

As g is constant at a place, W is directly proportional to the mass of the object.

The weight of the body changes from place to place and is not constant.

## A particle (P) of mass is released from rest at a point A on a curved smooth wedge of mass M,free to move on smooth horizontal surface.Velocity of wedge w.r.t ground is V1 and velocity of particle w.r.t wedge is V2 at,when particle is point B.Momentum conservation equation in horizontal direction can be writren as MV1+m(?)=0.Find (?)
