Mechanics To find the relationship between mass and weight Apparatus Various objects or masses (between 5 and 8), balance, newton-meters (1N and 5N)
Method Find the mass of an object using the balance. Find its corresponding weight using a newton-meter (start with the least sensitive-5N -first) but if its weight is under 1N, use the 1N newton-meter. Repeat this procedure using the other objects. Draw a graph of weight in N against mass in kg. Calculate the slope of this graph.
