    The weight of the Earth is a measure of the total gravitational force exerted on the Earth by all of the matter it contains. The weight of an object can vary depending on the location and the reference frame from which it is measured.

    The mass of the Earth is approximately 5.97 x 10^24 kilograms (kg). However, weight is a measure of the force exerted on an object due to gravity, and it depends on the mass of the object and the strength of the gravitational field. On the surface of the Earth, the average acceleration due to gravity is about 9.8 meters per second squared (m/s^2).

    Using the formula weight = mass × acceleration due to gravity, we can calculate the weight of the Earth. The weight of the Earth is roughly 5.97 x 10^24 kg × 9.8 m/s^2, which gives us a weight of approximately 5.87 x 10^25 newtons (N).
