The general opinion seems to be that the mass of the earth is about 6 septillion (6,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) kilograms, which is equivalent to 1.32 times 10^25 pounds avoirdupois (13,200,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 lb).

The Earth's mass is estimated to be 5.9736×10^24 kg
5,972,190,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg is the MASS of the Earth. Weight follows from Newton's Force (F) equation: F=mA where Force is weight, Mass is the amount of matter and A is the attractive force due to gravity. The Earth has no weight in relation to itself since it is the source of the gravity. The Earth does have weight in relation to other celestial bosies such as the Moon and the Sun.
