    This question is absolutely idiotic. The Newton is NOT a unit of weight, it is the unit of force required to accelerate a mass of 1 kilogram at a rate of 1 meter per second squared. Who ever set you this question is a cretin without the slightest understanding of physics. I sincerely hope it was not one of your teachers, if it was it would go part way to explain the appalling standard of education in the US. The blind leading the blind.
