Write the relation between weight, w of an object and its mass m.

In this problem we have to write the relation between bait w of an object and its mass m. So we know that weight of an object of an object is directly proportional to the proportional to the mass m of the object. So w is directly proportional to the mass m, so w is equals to m g, where g is proportionality, constant ant, which is also known as which is also known as acceleration due to gravity. So the relation between weight and mass of an object is w equals to w equals to m into g. This is all we have to find out. Thank you.

In mathematics, the absolute value or modulus |x| of a real number x is its numerical value without regard to its sign. The absolute value of a number may be thought of as its distance from zero along a number line; this interpretation is analogous to the distance function assigned to a real number in the real number system. For example, the absolute value of ?4 is 4, and the absolute value of 4 is 4, both without regard to sign.
