What is the weight in newtons of a 6.0 kg package of nails.?

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.
