vCalc.vMass

The **Mass and Weight Conversion** calculator converts a measurement of mass or weight from one standard units to another.

**INSTRUCTION:** Choose your preferred mass or weight units and enter the following:

- (
**M**) Input mass_{1} - (
**k**) Multiplier use as a product with M_{1}. Default is one (1).

**Mass/Weight:** The calculator multiplies M_{1} by the multiplier k and returns the mass/weight in the units chosen for M_{1}. However, the answer can be automatically converted to other mass or weight units via the pull-down menu.

**Scientific Note:** Mass and Weight are technically two different things. Weight is a force and mass is independent of any forces. However, under the force of gravity on the Earth's surface there is an easy and frequently used association between mass units like kilograms and weight units like pounds. The conversions in this calculator assumes this situation.
