Mass vs. Weight Documents
Jane Nelson and Jim Nelson
published by the AAPT/PTRA
This laboratory activity worksheet engages students in an exploration of mass and weight. Students use a balance to measure the mass and a spring scale to measure the weight of a series of objects. They then analyze the data to determine the relationship between these two quantities and conceptualize the distinction between the mass and weight through questions regarding measurements on the moon and other planets.
