Definition of Mass

quantity of matter comprising a body

Units: Kg

1 Kg = 2.21 lbs

Definition of Weight

attractive force that the Earth exerts on a body

Weight Equation

Wt = Mg

g = -9.81 m/s^{2}

Units: N

Definition of Pressure

the force per unit of area over which a force acts

Pressure Equation

P = FA

Units: Pa (N/m^{2}) or N/cm^{2}

Definition of Volume

amount of space a body occupies

Volume Equation

V = WHD

Units: cm^{3}, m^{3}, L
