Gravitational force (weight) = (mass) times (acceleration of gravity). On or near the surface of the Earth, the acceleration of gravity is about 9.8 m/s². Within that region . . .      (0.5 newton) = (mass) x (9.8 m/s²) Divide each side by 9.8m/s²:      Mass = (0.5 newton) / (9.8 m/s²)                                                    Mass  =  0.051 kilogram = 51 grams                                                                                              (rounded)
