Most of you already know that the weight of a 16 ounce pint of most

water like liquids varies at various locations. This is for those who

may not know that it does or why it does:

The weight of a fluid pint here on Earth is about one pound, or 16

ounces; but only where it will free fall at a rate of g/2=16'/sec^2*,

which is the approximate rate of free fall due to gravity over most of

Earth's surface: Therefore the "quantity of matter", or mass in one

fluid pint numerically equals g/2=16 oz/(16'/sec^2)=1 oz sec^2/foot.

In an environmentally controlled laboratory on the moon, a fluid pint

will only weigh about one sixth of a pound, or about 2.67 ounces:

Because the rate of free fall (g/2) due to gravity there is only about

one sixth as great as it is on Earth: So that g/2=2.67'/sec^2. The

"quantity of matter", or mass in one fluid pint there is still

numerically equal to 2.67 oz/(2.67'/sec^2)=1 oz sec^2/foot; the same as

it was on Earth.

In an environmentally controlled laboratory on any similar planet with

a solid stable surface, the quantity of matter, or mass in a fluid pint

will still be 1 oz sec^2/foot: Because its weight (w), divided by the

rate of free fall (g/2) due to gravity there will still be 1 oz

sec^2/foot.

This can be put into a simple mathematical formula as (m)=2w/g=2f/a= _A

Constant_ :: So that f=2(m)g=2(m)a ....

*Notice that this _rate_ is only one half of the _acceleration_ due to

gravity!
