The mass of a mouse is around 22 grams (0.022 kg). What is the weight of a mouse at sea level on Earth?

The weight of something is the force that it applies to the earth's surface. It is equal to mass (22 grams) times the acceleration due to gravity (9.8 m/s^2). When you multiply 22 grams x 9.8m/s^2 you get 215.6 Newtons as your answer for weight. [ Hope that helps! ]

B.0.022 kg
C.22 N
D.0.22 N

Weegy: Converted to gram-force, the answer would be exactly 21985.081551804. If we slide the decimal over and round up, it seems to come closest to the answer of A. 22 g Expert answered|Prinaker|Points 10|
