The weight of the Earth is not typically calculated because weight depends on the force of gravity acting against a mass. Instead, scientists use the concept of mass. The mass of the Earth is approximately 5.972 × 10^24 kg. However, if we still want to describe this in terms of weight, we can consider the weight of the Earth as the force with which it's pulled toward the sun. Using the average distance from the Earth to the Sun and the gravitational constant, the weight of the Earth is around 3.54 x 10^22 Newton. Keep in mind, the weight of the Earth is generally not a relevant measurement in most circumstances, particularly not in programming. Instead, you might be interested in working with the concept of gravity when dealing with physics simulations or game development.
