Here is a useful formula: \[W=mg\] - W is the magnitude of the weight force (unknown) - m is the mass (100 kg) - g is the constant acceleration due to gravity on Earth's surface (9.8 m/s/s)

W = weight of some object, usually measured in lb or N. The 'm' means mass and g is the gravity. So if we are solving for the weight of an object we calculate by using W = m*g You have all the variables so you can solve for W.
