Objects weigh more on Earth than they would on Mars. Weight is the measurement of the force of gravity. Gravity is the attraction between two objects with mass. Since the Earth is much more massive than Mars, the force of gravity is larger and objects weigh more.

Choose an object and see how much it weighs on each of the two planets.
