I forgot to add this question into my other Physical Science Posts..sorry

What is the difference between mass and weight?
Mass is what an object contains inside. Weight is a measure of how strongly gravity pulls on that matter.
[I got this from the internet but still need to know if it's correct because some sites aren't accurate] Thanks!
