MySQL - Query to edit field based on table join?

Hey,

I have a table of products, each with a "product_id" and a field called "weight".

There is a second table with "product_id" and "category_id".

I need to change the field "weight" to equal "2" for every product that has a  "category_id" of 5, 12, 15, 17 or 18.

Can any one help me build this example please?

Thank you

This should do it:
update product_table set weight=2
where product_id in (
    select product_id
    from product_category_table
    where category_id in (5, 12, 15, 17, 18)
)
