### 1.4. is measured by:

1.4.1. Beam Balance

1.4.2. Electronic Balance

## 2. Weight

### 2.4. is measured by: (because of these, weight is given in kg)

2.4.1. Electronic Balance

2.4.2. Spring Balance

2.4.3. Beam Balance

2.4.4. Bathroom Scale

### 2.5. changes with location

2.5.1. e.g. on the moon & on Earth

### 2.7. Weight = Mass x Gravitational Force

2.7.1. relates to F=ma

### 2.8. will be affected/dependent on mass

2.8.1. the more the mass, the more the weight

## 3. Inertia

### 3.5. What affects Inertia?

3.5.1. Mass of an object

3.5.1.1. The more mass an object has, the more inertia it has.

3.5.1.2. The larger a mass is, the more resistant it is to a change in velocity.

3.5.2. Velocity of an object

### 3.6. Examples of Inertia

3.6.1. If you throw a bowling ball with the same amount of force or newtons as a tennis ball, the tennis ball would go further than the bowling ball because it has lesser mass compared to the bowling ball.

3.6.2. If you are in a car going 80 miles an hour and you crash, your body will keep going at 80 miles an hour because you are not part of the car and are not attached (if you are not wearing a seatbelt)
