Mass has a direct effect on gravity, while weight is simply a measurement of the force of gravity on an object. While an object's mass stays the same no matter where it is located, the more mass an object has, the greate... More »

Gravity affects weight because gravity creates weight. Objects have mass, which is defined as how much matter an object contains. Weight is defined as the pull of gravity on mass. More »

The force of gravity between two objects is determined by the mass of each object and the distance between their centers. Objects with a greater amount of mass will exert a greater degree of gravitational pull, but as th... More »

Mass is the measurement of the amount of matter that an object contains, while weight represents the gravitational pull on a mass. Physicists calculate the weight of an object by multiplying its mass by the gravitational... More »

Mass does not affect speed directly, but it does affect how fast an object can change its speed by accelerating or decelerating. Objects with larger masses require more time for acceleration or deceleration compared to l... More »
