Weight, Force and Gravity Force Science Kit

Code: OPTP51

Since being a child we know that if we don’t hold an object it falls down. We then learn to link this phenomenon to the force concept, that everyday speech is defined as weight. Understanding that weight isn’t an object property is very important: weight is, actually, a consequence of the Earth attraction.
