The STANDARD force, and/or weight

It's so simple, that I don't know why I didn't think of this before;
but the _standard_ force, and weight is ONE/g: That is each system of
weights and measures has a different standard of force, and/or weight
depending of their numerical measure of the acceleration (g) of free
fall.

The dyne is 1/981 cm/sec/sec; the newton is 1/9.81 m/sec/sec, and the
pound is 1/32.174 feet/sec/sec: So that for any _unit_ of mass, w/g =
981 dynes/981 cm/sec/sec = 9.81 N/9.81 m/sec/sec = 32.174 pounds/32.174
feet/sec/sec = (the constant) ONE; which is equal to the net force (f)
exerted on, and/or by that _unit_ of mass, divided by the acceleration
(a) that it causes.

Any body's "gravitational mass" (w/g) is equal to its "inertial mass"
(f/a).

So the mass of a body is _derived_; from the ratio of the weight (w)
that it exerts on Earth's surface, divided by the acceleration (g) at
which it will free fall at the location where it is weighed; which is
also equal to the ratio of the net force (f) exerted on and/or by the
body, divided by the acceleration (a) that the net force causes.

isnt that a little over complicated don? lots of different weights
standards depending on which planet you are on and where you are on it?
surely a far more common sense idea would be to treat mass as a fundamental
quantity as it is invariant?

The idea of standardizing force and weight Is only complicated in your
great mind Jeremy. On this old world that we call Earth, because that's
the part we live on; there are really only two viably consistent
systems of weights and measures: The customary pound-foot system, with
its derived, invariant slug as its _unit_ of mass, and the SI
newton-meter system, with its derived, invariant kilogram as its _unit_
of mass.

When we do start to actually live on other worlds; then we may want to
develope a Systems Interglobal. For now we only need to have the
standard forces and weights that I have listed:

Notice that any body's "gravitational mass" (w/g) is equal to its
"inertial mass" (f/a): They are invariable constants, anywhere;
anytime.

You must be the guy responsible for not knowing how to look forward and not
code the dates properly in all the programs that never took into account
that using only the last two digits of the year might not be good when 2000
rolled around. So hey, why don't you just create a crippled system this
time too.

don to engineers: "What? Come up with sensors that measure speeds greater
than the speed of sound? We'll never need to worry about that since the
speed of sound will never be broken."

I had nothing to do with creating those problems; if there even were
any. Did you have any such problem, or was it all in your head(;^?

F' crying out loud, Stevie? I thought I was done with your foolishness.
Didn't you get the position counting them little atom thingies?
