Mass properties Tool

Hi guys,

 

I have a question regarding the Mass Properties tool.

 

When I use it to calculate the mass properties for my assembly it reads out Mass=60lb.

 

That would mean the weight (on earth) of my assembly is 60.0lb*32.2ft/s^2=1932lb(force) however the assembly does not weigh anywhere near that in reality.

 

I made a cube of water 10x10mm and it read mass 1g, which is its weight (on earth).

 

So when it reads mass does it really mean weight, and if so why?? Little confused.

 

Thanks!
