Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Mass is the measure of the amount of matter in a body. Mass is denoted using m or M.

Weight is the measure of the amount of force acting on a mass due to the acceleration due to gravity. Weight usually is denoted by W. Weight is mass multiplied by the acceleration of gravity.

W = m * g

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
