Which weighs more, a pound of feathers or a pound of gold?
posted Jul 5, 2016

They both weigh the same. A pound of feathers occupies a larger volume compared to a pound of gold but the force of gravitation exerted upon them is the same.

In vacuum both weigh the same but in air due to buoyant upward force on cotton the net weight will reduce depending upon its volume.

Which weighs more: a gallon of liquid water or a gallon of ice?

(With "weight" meaning, weight on the same planet, at the same location -- so literally, "which has more mass?")

How many dollars would you have left if you started with \$20.00 and took 30lbs worth of candy corn which costs 13 cents a pound?

I am a feeling that cannot be touched,
But I'm more valuable than gold or clutch.

I'm a force that's strong, yet soft as a dove,
And I'm the reason behind every love.

You can't see me, but you feel me so true,
I'm what makes me say "I love you".

What am I?
