What is the definition of “weight”?
 A measure of the force of gravity on your body B the time it takes to get on a ride C the amount of matter in an object D the size of an object
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -The most common definition of weight found in introductory physics textbooks defines weight as the force exerted on a body by gravity. This is often expressed in the formula W = mg, where W is the weight, m the mass of the object, and g gravitational acceleration.

Detailed explanation-2: -Weight is the Gravitational force with which the Earth attracts the masses towards its center. Gravity is related to the resultant force with which a mass is attracted to Earth. So, this happens only between Earth and a mass, unlike gravitational force which occurs between any two masses.

Detailed explanation-3: -What is Weight? It is the measure of the force of gravity acting on a body. The formula for weight is given by: w = mg. As weight is a force its SI unit is also the same as that of force, SI unit of weight is Newton (N).

Detailed explanation-4: -The term that refers to the measure of the force of gravity on an object is known as weight.
