Nope, can't see any mistakes. I'm pretty sure that page is fully correct. This will be a great help to people, as a lot of them get mixed up and confused between the two key words.
Agreed. Very nicely done page. One minor quibble - weight is technically measured in Newtons and not kg. But then again, putting the measurements of weight in kg makes the explanation much easier to follow. Maybe there should be a small note somewhere on the page though.
Edit: And goodness me that lift was going very fast.
Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.
wheight isnt measured in newtons-force is
I love pi.
Nice page, MathsIsFun!
Weight is referred as kilograms force.
The unit of weight is, therefore, Newton or kgms-² .
Since Force(Newtons) is mass x acceleration, Kg force is used for expressing weight.

That's wonderfull! Keep up the good work!
I see clearly now, the universe have the black dots, Thus I am on my way of inventing this remedy...
Yes, I think a note about Newtons is needed.
But I will put it at the end so as not to confuse (scales that measure Newtons are rare!)
