Mass determination in the gravitational field covers a wide measuring range and, as a comparative method, facilitates very sensitive measurements. However, gravity is a very weak force. First by application of acceleration fields and with mass spectrometric methods, the measuring range could be extended towards atomic and sub-atomic masses. There are only practical limits of weighing heavy masses. The mass of celestial objects can be determined by means of Kepler’s Laws.
