I want to lift a weight of 1kg so how much force is required ? This is my question. Again I want to mention that 1Kg is weight not mass. I think if i say weight then gravitational pull is already acting on it.
For example if it's in earth then the multiplication factor would be 9.81m/s2. According to newton second law F=ma where m is mass not weight
W[weight] =mg = 1kg
so the value of mass m=w/g=1/9.81=0.1kg
F1=ma = 0.1 * 9.81 = 1N
So the number says 1N force is required to counteract the gravitational pull.
So total force required is completely based on my required accelecration
Lets say a= 2m/s2
So total of 2N is required to lift a weight of 1kg at 2m/s2
but I came across a lot of articles I got terribly confused between Mass and Weight. I have pasted the links for your clarification.
