# Weight (Mass) Conversion Calculator

The concept of weight and mass is related to physics. Every object or body has a certain weight. Be it the glass, the ball you play with, the pen you write with, or the house you live in, everything has a particular weight. And this weight can be expressed in different units. Are you thinking of expressing those units into different ones yourself? If yes, it might be a little difficult task for you to do manually, it all depends on how good you are at mental arithmetic. So looking for a tool or online device that can help with quick and precise calculations makes perfect sense.

## How a Weight (Mass) Conversion Calculator Can Make Your Calculation Process Simpler

The weight (mass) conversion calculator by iCalculator is the simplest online tool for anyone to convert between different units of weight(mass) within seconds without wasting time and effort.

Understanding the weight (mass) conversion calculator was easy, wasn't it? Let's look at different terms related to the calculator now.

## What are weight and mass?

Mass can be defined as the tendency or the property of an object to resist a net force applied to it in order to modify its state of motion. For example, let us consider a small ball that is kept in front of you. You could easily change its position by pushing it. But what if that ball is replaced with a much larger ball? You still can change its position by pushing it but at this moment, it will be a bit difficult for you to do so. This is due to the different masses of the balls that resist the state of their motion.

Now if we define weight, we would say that weight is a force that is exerted on an object by the earth to pull that object towards its centre.

The weight of an object depends on the gravitational pull of the earth or the surrounding. However, the mass of an object does not depend on anything. This is the reason why the mass of an object is a constant while the weight may change. Your mass will be the same on the earth as well as on the moon but your weight will be different on the earth and the moon.

## The formula for finding weight

The formula for finding weight is-

W = mg

Where

• W is the Weight of an object
• m is the mass of that object
• g is the acceleration due to gravity whose value is 9.8m/s2 (sometimes we consider it as 10m/s2)
• ## Different units of weight (mass)

Here is a list of some of the different units of weight:

### Kilogram [ kg ]

The kilogram is known to be the base unit of mass in the MKS and SI unit. Its value is equal to 1000 grams.

### Gram [ g ]

It is a unit of mass whose value is equal to about 0.035 273 966 ounces.

### Ounce [ oz ]

Being a traditional unit of weight, the value of an ounce is equal to 0.028349523125 kilograms.

### Pound [ lb ]

It is a unit of weight whose value is 0.45359237 kilograms.

### Ton [ t ]

It is a unit of mass or weight whose value is equal to 1000 kilograms.

### Troy ounce [ tr oz ]

It is the 2nd traditional unit of weight or mass which is commonly used in jewelry and pharmacy.

### Grain [ gr ]

Being a traditional unit of weight, its value is equal to 64.798 91 milligrams.

### Carat [ ct ]

It is a unit of mass which is used for precious stones such as diamonds, golds, etc.
