Mass, Weight & Density Preview Page

Learning Outcomes

Candidates should be able to:

  1. state that mass is a measure of the amount of substance in a body
  2. state that mass of a body resists a change in the state of rest or motion of the body (inertia)
  3. state that a gravitational field is a region in which a mass experiences a force due to gravitational attraction
  4. define gravitational field strength, g, as gravitational force per unit mass
  5. recall and apply the relationship weight = mass × gravitational field strength to new situations or to solve related problems
  6. distinguish between mass and weight
  7. recall and apply the relationship density = mass / volume to new situations or to solve related problems
