Enter the total weight (N) into the Mass From Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Mass. 

Mass From Weight Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Mass From Weight. 

M = W / 9.81

  • Where M is the Mass From Weight (kg)
  • W is the total weight (N) 

How to Calculate Mass From Weight?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Mass From Weight.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total weight (N). 
    • The total weight (N) is given as: 550.
  2. Finally, calculate the Mass From Weight using the equation above: 

M = W / 9.81

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

M = 550 / 9.81 = 56.06 (kg)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total weight (N) = 674

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

M = W / 9.81 = ?
