a frozen turkey bought in canada is labeled "5.0 kilograms." this is a measurement of its mass. what is its weight in newtons.

**Answer**

The weight is the mass times gravity.

The value of gravity is constant which is g = 9.8 m/s^2.

Since the units are everything consistent, the weight of the frozen turkey is w = (5.0 kg)(9.8 m/s^2) = 49 N
