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?
