Mass to Weight
While mass is a quantity independant of the location where it is measured, the weight (or force) is changing with the respective acceleration of gravity. For Earth this converter uses the standard acceleration of gravity of 9.80665 m s-2; at the other locations the acceleration of gravity is calculated from the mass and the radius.
Usage: At first choose the location from the pull down menu. Type the mass or weight you want to convert into the field, behind which you find the unit. Click on any empty space in the window or on the "calculate" button. Read the result in the other fields. Use the "reset" button to reset your calculation. Move the mouse over a unit or click on it to read its full name.
Example: What is the weight of a mass of 70 kg on the moon and on Venus. First of all choose the moon in the pull down menu. Type the value of "70" into the kg field. Click on the "calculate" button or any free space of the window. Read the result in the kp field (11.585 kp). Now choose Venus in the pull down menu. (The mass remains the same at 70 kg). Read the result again in the kp field (62.135 kp).
