Alaska Measures and Weights:

In the physical sciences, Weight is a measurement of the gravitational force acting on an object. Near the surface of the Earth, the acceleration due to gravity is approximately constant; this means that an object's weight is roughly proportional to its mass. Weight is commonly measured using one of two methods. A spring scale or hydraulic or pneumatic scale measures local weight, the local force of gravity on the object.

Measurement is the process of estimating the magnitude of some attribute of an object, such as its length, weight, or depth relative to some standard .such as a meter or a kilogram. The term is also used to indicate the number that results from that process. Metrology is the scientific study of measurement.

Measurement is fundamental in science; it is one of the things that distinguish science from pseudoscience. It is easy to come up with a theory about nature, hard to come up with a scientific theory that predicts measurements with great accuracy. Measurement is also essential in industry, commerce, engineering, construction, manufacturing, pharmaceutical production, and electronics.
