The weight of an object is the product of its mass, m, and the acceleration of gravity, g (where g=9.8 m/s2). If an object’s mass is m=10. kg, what is its weight? Express the weight to two significant figures and include the appropriate units.

[latex]m-mass[/latex] [latex]w-weight[/latex] [latex]g-gravitational\ acceleration[/latex] [latex]w=m*g[/latex] [latex]w=10kg*9.8m/s^2[/latex] [latex]w=98\frac{kg*m}{s^2}[/latex] You need to remember that [latex]1\frac{kg*m}{s^2}=1N[/latex] So final answer is [latex]w=98\frac{kg*m}{s^2}=98N[/latex]
