The weight of an object is the product of its mass, m, and the acceleration of gravity, g (where g=9.8 m/s2). If an object’s mass is m=58.5 grams, what is its weight? Same goes to 45.93 grams. If you could answer as soon as possible that would be great!

  1. the mass (in kg) multiplied by the gravitational acceleration (in m/s^2)
    gives the weight in N (Newtons)

    w = .0585 kg * 9.8 m/s^2

    w = .04593 kg * 9.8 m/s^2

    the g value is 2 sig fig, so that is what the answer will have
