Mass: Mass is a way to measure the inertia of an object.  If an object has more mass, it has more inertia.  It usually signifies the amount of matter a material object possesses.

Weight: Weight is the gravitational pull between an object and the earth.

Force: A force is a cause of acceleration.  It is a “push” or a “pull”.

Newtons Second Law of Motion states that “the acceleration of an object varies directly with the net force acting on an object, is in the direction of the net force, and varies indirectly with the mass of an object.”

Newton’s Second Law of Motion in equation: a= (Fnet)/m, where a is acceleration, Fnet is the net force, and m is the mass of an object.
