Solution :-

The differences between the mass of an object and its weight is tabulated below.

Mass Weight
Mass is the quantity of matter contained in the body. Weight is the force of gravity acting on the body.
Weight is the force of gravity acting on the body. Weight is the force of gravity acting on the body.
It only has magnitude. It has magnitude as well as direction.
Mass is a constant quantity. Weight is not a constant quantity. It is different at different places.
Its SI unit is kilogram (kg). Its SI unit is the same as the SI unit of force, i.e., Newton (N).
