Answer :

The mass is the fundamental property of a body that is a measure of its resistance to change in the state of motion. It also describes the strength of its mutual gravitational force of attraction to other bodies. It does not depend on the value of g. It is measured by a beam balance.
The weight of a body is the force with which earth pulls the body towards its centre.

Weight(W)=mass(m)×Acceleration due to gravity(g)
W=mg
It changes with the change in the value of g. It is measured by a spring balance.
