I have always, rather glibly, answered: 'it is the amount of a thing' or 'the number of particles in a thing' but there must be a better explanation. Any answers?
Thanks for the answers. I am working at a much lower functional level than the post you shared here George. I just wonder why we use mass as a measurement for amount of apples, potatoes etc... instead of the weight. This is confusing for a simpleton like me.
Lightarrow, this always confused me and others in school. Why don't we weigh in newtons? Also, what are the units for weight in Imperial measures?
