    If we see in a Technical way, the weight of the earth is zero. The Earth revolves around the Sun so it's in a freefall position. Weight is measured as the attraction between two bodies. It's the attraction of their masses. Any body which is in freefalling position with respect to any other large body in an orbit is weightless. This is the same reason for astronauts are weightless in space as they are in the orbit around the Earth . Moreover, the mass of the Earth can be calculated from its gravity and its mass is 5.9736×1024 kg.
