User: what is mass

Weegy: a mail carrier lifting a heavy package on earth may associate the heaviness (weight) of the package with the mass of its contents. This is a reasonable association for objects on earth. [ However, if the same package were on the moon it would weigh much less and would be easy to lift. Therefore, the mass of a package is only part of the reason that the package is difficult to lift on earth. The complete reason involves the interaction of the package?s mass with the gravity of the earth. ]
