Mass - 7th grade (12y) - math problems

Mass is a property of a physical body and a measure of its resistance to acceleration (a change in its state of motion) when a force is applied. An object's mass also determines the strength of its gravitational attraction to other bodies. The basic SI unit of mass is the kilogram (kg). Other are gram, tonne, milligram, etc.
