 weight force Explanation:la forza dovuta alla massa (una volta si chiamava peso). Ora riferendosi al peso di qualcosa (persona, veicolo, ecc) si usa massa e la si esprime in kg. Il peso è una forza e dato che la forza = massa x accelerazione di gravità, se una ruota ha una massa di 10 kg il suo peso (=forza) è di 10 x 9,81 (kg . m/s²) ovvero 98, 1 newton (simbolo N) Conversion between weight (force) and mass To convert between weight (force) and mass we use Newton's second law, F = ma (force = mass × acceleration). Here, F is the force due to gravity, m is the mass of the object in question, and a is the acceleration due to gravity, on Earth approximately 9.8 m/s² or 32.2 ft/s². In this context the same equation is often written as W = mg, with W standing for weight, and g for the acceleration due to gravity.

Explanation:
la forza dovuta alla massa (una volta si chiamava peso).
Ora riferendosi al peso di qualcosa (persona, veicolo, ecc) si usa massa e la si esprime in kg.
Il peso è una forza e dato che la forza = massa x accelerazione di gravità, se una ruota ha una massa di 10 kg il suo peso (=forza) è di 10 x 9,81 (kg . m/s²) ovvero 98, 1 newton (simbolo N)

Conversion between weight (force) and mass
To convert between weight (force) and mass we use Newton's second law, F = ma (force = mass × acceleration). Here, F is the force due to gravity, m is the mass of the object in question, and a is the acceleration due to gravity, on Earth approximately 9.8 m/s² or 32.2 ft/s². In this context the same equation is often written as W = mg, with W standing for weight, and g for the acceleration due to gravity.

neutral  Gian: secondo i nuovi concetti sarebbe corretto; qui evidentemente si è voluto mettere in evidenza che non si tratta di peso (=massa - kg) ma della forza (N) dovuta al peso (=massa). Si trovano ancor oggi molti esempi di "weight" espresso in kg (cosa errata!)
