You
are a geophysicists studying meteorites. You discover that a very
large meteorite has fallen to Earth.
You
know that objects in space have no weight, so you are curious to
find out the meteorite's mass. Mass is the amount of material in
an object.
You
figure out that the meteorite weighs 230 kilograms, but this only
tells you the force of the Earth's gravity on the meteorite. It
doesn't tell you anything about its mass.
Mass
is measured in Newtons.
1 kg = 9.807 newtons
If
the meteorite weights 320 kg. how many Newtons does it weight?
______
