Based on the discipline, the definition of weight varies. The standardized definition says the weight of an object is the force acted upon it by gravity. The definition changes and gets complicated, as state of motion and theory of relativity is included in an equation. Its SI unit of measurement is same as force, which is Newton—he needs no introduction. It was Newton, who first gave a universal theoretical formula for weight in his famous work of classical mechanics.
In practical sense, mass and weight are used interchangeably. As long as you are working on earth, the difference between weight and mass is irrelevant, as the strength of gravity will remain the same. The SI unit of weight, when used in the context of mass, is kilogram (kg) used almost globally, except The US. The accepted unit in the US is pound; one pound is equal to 0.453592 pounds, making weight unit conversions essential.
