# which of the following quantities would be acceptable representations of weight?

**What quantities represent weight?** – The unit of measurement for weight is that of force, which in the International System of Units (SI) is the newton. For example, an object with a mass of one kilogram has a weight of about 9.8 newtons on the surface of the Earth, and about one-sixth as much on the Moon.

**Which of the following quantities would be acceptable representations of weight ??** – Which of the following quantities would be acceptable representations of weight? Weight is a force and is measured in newtons (or kilonewtons, meganewtons, etc.) or in pounds (or tons, megatons, etc.). The gravitational field on the surface of the earth is stronger than that on the surface of the moon.

**What units are for weight?** – Glossary: Mass (weight) Units. The Metric System of Measurements uses the mass units: gram (g), kilogram (kg) and tonne (t).

**What is used to measure weight?** – A: On earth, we use scales to measure mass and weight; we can use spring scales or hydraulic scales, to name a few.

**For which of the following other motions would your weight also be greater than your normal weight?** – You found that your weight will be greater than normal when the elevator is moving upward with increasing speed. For which of the following other motions would your weight also be greater than your normal weight? The elevator moves downward while slowing in speed.

**What is formula of acceleration due to gravity?** – › jee › acceleration-due-to-gravity

**What did Newton discover about gravity?** – Newton realized that the force of gravity here on earth that causes things (like apples) to fall works the same way everywhere in the universe. His work proved that gravity worked on celestial objects, like the moon, Earth and the planets, and was able to calculate their orbits which had long been observed.
