    Solution:

    The weight of the object on earth is 98 N.
    Weight W is the measure of the gravitational force acting between a celestial body and an object. It is a product of mass m and gravitational acceleration g of the celestial body and can mathematically be expressed as W=mg
    According to the given data in the problem,
    Object mass = 10 kg
    Also, acceleration due to gravity on earth is given by,
    ge = 9.8 Therefore, the weight of the object on Earth
    = m ×  ge            = 10 × 9.8            = 98 N
