Mass Media Companies Of Venezuela
Mass is the physical quantity, quantity of ''matter'' in a physical body. It is also a measure (mathematics), measure of the body's ''inertia'', the resistance to acceleration (change of velocity) when a net force is applied.

In physics, mass is not the same as weight, even though mass is often determined by measuring the object's weight using a spring scale, rather than Weighing scale#Balance scales, balance scale comparing it directly with known masses. An object on the Moon would weigh less than it does on Earth because of the lower gravity, but it would still have the same mass. This is because weight is a force, while mass is the property that (along with gravity) determines the strength of this force.
