# 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.

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