in paper stock: the lightness or heaviness of a paper. (60#, 70#, 80# and 100# are most common.) Text weights are thin and are generally used for the inside pages of books, newsletters and brochures. Cover weights are thick and are generally used for covers of booklets and for business cards. In typefaces: the lightness or heaviness of a typeface, which is determined by the ratio of the stroke thickness to character height.
Degree of boldness of a typeface. Futura type, for example, is made in light, medium, book, heavy, bold and extra bold - the different weights.
the downward force an object exerts due to gravity; a measure of the force of attraction between the earth and an object. (see mass)
The measure of the heaviness of an object as gravitational force is exerted on that object. Different from mass.
the product of mass and gravitational force.
Force of attraction experienced by an object resting on the surface of an attracting body.
Weight is a measure of the pull of gravitational force on an object. It is directly proportional to mass.
the gravitational force exerted on an object by a planet
The force or amount of gravitational pull by which an object or body is attracted toward the centre of the earth.
The force of gravity acting on an object. The weight force pulls an aircraft toward the Earth and must be overcome by a combination of lift and thrust.
(W) Compare with mass. Weight is the force exerted by an object in a gravitational field. The weight of an object (W) arises from its mass W = mg where g is the acceleration due to gravity (about 9.8 m/s2 on Earth).
Weight is a measurement of the gravitational force acting on an object. The weight of an object is expressed in pounds in the U.S. A 180-pound person is experiencing a force of gravitational attraction to the earth equal to 180 pounds.
force of gravity on an object, equal to mg.
the vertical force exerted by a mass as a result of gravity
an artifact that is heavy
an oppressive feeling of heavy force; "bowed down by the weight of responsibility"
the gravitational force the Earth exerts on an object. Weight is measured in Newtons.
The force exerted on a body by a gravitational field. It is proportional to, but not the same as, its mass.
The strength of the gravitational force pulling down on an object.
The force exerted on any object by gravity.
The force on an object caused by the pull of the Earth's gravity. Energy
A measure of how hard gravity is pulling on mass. Your mass stays the same, but gravity pulls on you less on the Moon, so your weight would be less there.
term referring to the "heaviness" of a type face's stroke. Terms often used are light, medium, book, bold, heavy, ultra.
The thickness of the strokes in letters. This determines how heavy or light a type style will appear.
Is the mass of an object times the acceleration of gravity. Therefore if an object is taken to another celestial body its weight will change ie an object on the moon weighs 1/6 of what it weighs on the earth.
The degree to which a body is drawn toward the earth by gravity.
The weight of an object on Earth is the force that occurs due to the gravitational attraction between the object and the Earth. The weight of an object depends on its mass and also on the gravitational field strength. What is a Force
The force of attraction between an object and the Earth (or other astronomical body).
The gravitational force exerted on a given mass.
The mass of heaviness of a substance; weight measurements are commonly expressed as grams (metric) ounces and pounds (U.S. and Imperial).
The force exerted on mass by gravity.
the physical mass of the ski.
(n.): The lightness or heaviness of the denim. Approximately 8 ounces is a breezy, cotton-y fabric; 14 ounces is on the hefty side.
measures that represent the force that attracts an object to the center of Earth.
measure that represents the force that attracts an object to the center of Earth.
The force of gravity on an object. Weight, like all other forces is measured in newtons.
The gravitational force of attraction exerted by the Earth on an object. The force of attraction exists between all objects, but it is small and the Earth's attraction is much larger. As weight is a force, its unit is the Newton (N). The weight of any object on earth can be calculated using: W = mg where m = mass (kg). g = gravitational constant = 9.8m-2. In everyday use, the term weight really refers to the mass of a person or object.
Heavy metal piece used to power certain types of chime clock movements. Usually decorative when used with quartz movements
The weight of a object is the result of gravity pulling a mass toward earth. When a balance has been calibrated using a known mass then any unknown mass placed upon the scale will have a weight proportional to the known mass. The units gram and kilogram are often used to describe the weight of on object. It is common for mass and weight to be used interchangeably. A weight can also be any mass that is used, for example to put a weight on the scale.
Force F of gravity g on an object with a mass m. F=mg
That property of a body that tends to pull it toward the center of the earth. Also expressed as the attraction of gravity exerted upon an object.
The amount of speed applied in delivering the bowl from the mat to the Jack. "Heavy" weight means that the bowl stops beyond the Jack, while "Light" means that it stops short of the spot desired.
a response of mass to the pull of gravity
The attraction between the earth's gravity and a mass.
A measure of the gravitational force acting on a mass.
(symbol .). The force with which a body is attracted toward the earth. The product of the mass of a body and the acceleration acting on a body. In a dynamic sutuation, the weight can be a multiple of that under resting conditions. Weight also varies on other planets in accordance with their gravity.
The gravitational force exerted on a body.
the force on an object due to the gravitational pull of a planet or other heavenly body.
the force with which a body is attracted towards the earth's centre. In non-scientific contexts, often used synonymously with mass (though technically different).
the force exerted on an object due to gravity
Weight is a measure of how heavy something is. Weight is caused by the force of gravity pulling down upon an object. An object's weight depends on what planet or moon it's on (unlike mass, which is constant).
The force that is exerted on an object by gravity. It is measured in newtons.
In the physical sciences, weight is a measurement of the gravitational force acting on an object. In everyday parlance (and, for historical reasons, still in some technical terminology), "weight" is often used as a synonym for mass.
