| Mass is the measure of the ability of an object to be accelerated.
Less correctly, mass is the measure of the amount of matter an object contains.
|The resistance of an object to changes motion is its inertia, and the quantity of inertia an object has is its mass.||Weight is a measurement of the force exerted by the gravitational field of a nearby body.|
