Students will be able to
- recall that mass and weight are not the same thing,
- recognize that all objects are attracted toward the center of Earth,
- recall that the gravitational force on an object becomes larger if the object’s mass is larger,
- recall that the object’s weight acts on its center of mass,
- use the formula weight = mass acceleration due to gravity,
- recall that the local value of , the acceleration due to gravity, varies across Earth.
