What is the measure of mass?

Mass is the amount of matter in an object. Move to a different planet and an object's weight will change, but its mass will be the same. There are a couple of ways to measure mass. The most common method is to use a balance.

Also know, what is the unit of mass?

The standard International System of Units (SI) unit of mass is the kilogram (kg). The kilogram is 1000 grams (g), first defined in 1795 as one cubic decimeter of water at the melting point of ice.

Why is weight not measured in Newtons?

When weight is used to refer to mass, then use units of mass (kilograms), and when weight is used to refer to force, then use units of force (newtons). A body of mass 1 kg will have weight 9.8N. 1 kgf = 9.8N. Therefore we see a body of mass 1 kg has weight 1 kgf.

What is the unit of force?
