• Attention should be paid to not confuse mass and weight.
• The mass (kg) is an intrinsic characteristic of the body and is measured in kilogram.
• The weight is a force which depends on terrestrial attraction and it is the equivalent of the mass of a body by the acceleration of gravity (9.80665 at the sea level) and is measured in Newton [ N ].
• The specific mass is the quotient of the mass of a body by its volume.
• The unit of mass of S.I. = kilogram.
