Default Mass and/or inertia: The net force per the acceleration it causes:




Using the consistent (fps) units of the foot-pound-second system of weights
and measures: A body's acceleration [a] is proportional to the ratio of the
net force [f] exerted on and/or by it to [divided by] its mass [m]!

Therefore [f] is not _equal_ to [ma]! A body's mass [m] is proportional to
the ratio of the (net) force [f], exerted on and/or by it to [divided] by
the acceleration [a] that
occurs; due to that force: Therefore, for one slug of mass: f/a = 1#
sec˛/foot = w/g = 5.33#
sec˛/5.33 feet =32# sec˛/32 feet....

With mass [m] being proportional to the ratios: m = f/a = w/g:

f = (w/g)a [= (f/a)a]; where by transposition f/a = (w/g) = (f/a):
w = (f/a)g [=(w/g)g]; where by transposition w/g = (f/a) = (w/g).

Any intellegent pros or cons are welcome; from anyone.

You are an idiot, shitHead. Physics depends on dimensions not units.
You don't know how to use an exclamation point, either. It isn't like
shaking your dicklette after peeing.

Donald,

Why do you continue to plague this list with your references to
pseudo-science? Please leave this group to the discussion of topics
with in the physics domain.

Thanks
Gene

The metric system gives you some other answer? Acceleration is the derived
quantity not mass. You start with an object, apply a force and you get an
acceleration proportional to the mass and force applied a = f / m. Force is
measured in Newtons which has the units for mass and acceleration, and how
do you get the combination of units of mass and acceleration? You multiply
them together: f = ma. Why do you continually post this stuff over and over?
Are you trying to learn something and it's just not sinking in?

Nicholas
