Following are the difference between the weight and mass of an object.
i. Since mass is the amount of the matter present in the body, and amount of matter (ex: bones, blood, skin etc) is same everywhere. Therefore the mass of the object on earth will be the same as that on the mars.
ii. whereas the weight of an object on Earth and Mars will be different as the value of accelearation due to gravity(g) is different for Earth and Mars and we know that Weight= Mass × g. Therefore, the weight of the object will be different on Mars as that on the surface of Earth
