Weight, Mass, and Density is quite an intriguing topic. They all sound the same, isn’t it? Here is the surprising element: though Weight, mass, and density depend on one another they are different from each other. To make a clear understanding, the above image is explained below.

Every object is made up of atoms; mass is approximately the number of atoms in an object and also the measure of the object’s resistance towards the gravity. Mass remains the same irrespective of the place.
The SI unit of Mass is: Kilogram
Mass on Earth
Mass on Moon
Weight depends on the force of the gravity on any object. Unlike mass, weight keeps changing it’s number based on the place.
For Example, A small iron nail may be less in volume but the amount of matter packed inside is more than a large balloon filled with air. In that case, density of the iron nail is more than the density of the balloon.
What is the difference between weight and mass?
In simple words; mass is the quantity of atoms in an object; whereas weight depends on the action of gravity on the quantity of atoms in that object.
