The force with which an object near the Earth or another celestial body is attracted toward the center of the body by gravity. An object's weight depends on its mass and the strength of the gravitational pull. The weight of an object in an aircraft flying at high altitude is less than its weight at sea level, since the strength of gravity decreases with increasing distance from the Earth's surface. The SI unit of weight is the newton, though units of mass such as grams or kilograms are used more informally to denote the weight of some mass, understood as the force acting on it in a gravitational field with a strength of one G. The pound is also still used as a unit of weight.

(Physics) The quantity of matter in a body as measured by its inertia; the ratio of force to the acceleration produced by that force: the gravitational force on an object is proportional to its mass

The action of oppressing; arbitrary and cruel exercise of power:
