## Weight Force

Weight force is the force of gravity or the weight.  The pull of gravity creates downward acceleration of the object falling and factors such as air resistance can affect the weight force.

### Weight Force Formula

$$W = F_g = m g$$          $$weight \;=\; weight \; force \;=\; mass \;\;x\;\; gravitational \; acceleration$$

Where:

$$F_g$$ = weight force

$$g$$ = gravitational acceleration

$$m$$ = mass

$$W$$ = weight
