WooCommerce: How Can A Product Weight Be Returned Using PHP?

I am setting up a Google Merchant Feed, and one of the requirements is to include a shipping weight of the product. I am using this tutorial: http://www.binaryforest.com/woocommerce-google-product-feed/

How can the product weight be returned by php into the xml?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


//Define the product feed php page
function products_feed_rss2() {
$rss_template = get_template_directory() . '/product-feed.php';
load_template ( $rss_template );

//Add the product feed RSS
add_action('do_feed_products', 'products_feed_rss2', 10, 1);

//Update the Rerewrite rules
add_action('init', 'my_add_product_feed');

//function to add the rewrite rules
function my_rewrite_product_rules( $wp_rewrite ) {
$new_rules = array(
'feed/(.+)' => 'index.php?feed='.$wp_rewrite->preg_index(1)
$wp_rewrite->rules = $new_rules + $wp_rewrite->rules;

//add the rewrite rule
function my_add_product_feed( ) {
global $wp_rewrite;
add_action('generate_rewrite_rules', 'my_rewrite_product_rules');

<?php endwhile; ?>
