## Resource summary

 Question Answer Mass is NOT the same as weight. Mass is defined as: "The amount of matter in an object" Mass is measured in kilograms (kg) A water balloon is more massive than an air balloon; there is more matter (water) in the water balloon The mass of an object never changes (unless we alter the object)!
