||The amount of matter contained in a body is called mass.
||The force by which earth attracts or pull objects towards its center is called weight.
||It remains always constant regardless of the location in universe.
||It varies from place to place.
||It is measured by ordinary or beam balance.
||It is measured by spring balance.
||It is measured in grams or kilograms.
||It is measured in newton.
||It has only magnitude but no direction so scalar quantity.
||It has both magnitude and direction so called vector.
||Mass of a body can never be zero.
||Weight can be zero if gravity does not act on the body.
||Mass of a moving body can be calculated by using formula: F=m/a.
||Weight of a body can be calculated by using formula: w=m.g.
||It is closely related to inertia.
||It is closely related to gravity.
||It is denoted by ‘m’ or ‘M’.
||It is denoted by ‘w’.
