Write the differences between mass and weight of an object.
|1. The mass of an object is the guantity of matter contained in it.||1. The weight of an object is the force with it is attracted towards the centre of the earth.|
|2. SI unit of mass is kilogram (kg).||2. SI unit of mass is newton (N).|
3.The mass of an object is constant.
3. The weight of an object is not constant. It changes with the change in acceleration due to gravity.
|4. The mass of an object can never be zero.||
4. The weight of an object can be zero.
|1.||The quantity of matter contained in a body is called mass.||The force with which the earth attracts a body towards its centre is called weight.|
|2.||Mass of a body remains constant.||Weight of a body changes from place to place .|
|3.||Mass of a body is never zero .||Weight of a body becomes zero wherever the net gravitational force due to earth is zero.|
|4.||Mass of a body is measured in kg.||Weight of a body is measured in kg-wt or N.|
|5.||Mass of a body is measured by beam balance.||Weight of a body is measured by weighing balance.|
