Unformatted text preview: familiar Weight = Force Weight is measured in N (newtons) Putting it all together The apple has mass (kg) It gets pulled to the ground at a force (this can be measured in Newtons) = WEIGHT The earths gravitational field strength pulls the apple towards it How can we calculate weight? We can use an equation we already know to help us: g ( gravitational field strength ) = force / mass If Force = Weight Weight = Mass x g ( gravitational field strength ) Memorise: W = m X g This powerpoint was kindly donated to www.worldofteaching.com http://www.worldofteaching.com is home to over a thousand powerpoints submitted by teachers.
