Weight 重量

Weight 重量 is a derived quantity. It is a force due
to the pull (attraction) of gravity.

The weight of an object is the gravitational force exerted on (acted on) the object.

Therefore, even though the mass of an object is the same on Earth as it is on the moon, its weight is different because the pull of gravity on Earth is greater than that on the moon.
