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. ]

In physics, mass is a property of a physical body which determines the body's resistance to being accelerated by a force and the strength of its mutual gravitational attraction with other bodies.
