Default masses vs, weights




The mass of an object is: It's volume, divided by it's weight, (or
mass) density per unit volume; which is equal to it's weight (w),
divided by the acceleration (g) at which it will free fall at the
location of the spring, or steelyard type scale on which it is weighed;
which is equal to the net force exerted on, and/or by it, to the
acceleration that it causes.

You are confusing what something is, with how it can be described.

What else is there? You've either got m=w/g=f/a or w=(m)g=fg/a.

Mr. Clemens, I don't think you are supposed to repost previous posts;
that's _worse_ than trolling. Oh well, what can we expect from someone
who doesn't know mass from his elbow.

You, sir, appear to be confusing Don1 (aka "sHead") with somebody who gives
a s**t about anyone else's opinion of something.

If you'd written "doesn't know his mass from his elbow" you'd have had a
mildly amusing joke. Can't you get anything right?

Pretty much sums Don up. I am surprised he didn't write elbow from mass as
he seems to enjoy reversing processes until they cease to make sense.

Very true. I had thought, in his recent absence, he may have evolved a brain
cell or two. Shame I was mistaken.

Never mind, I am eternally optimistic.

To Don

Newton's law of Gravitation:



m1 m2

O --> F1 F2 <-- O

|-------- R --------|



F1= F2= F= (G*m1*m2)/ R^2

Constant= G= 6.67*10^-11 Newton


G is a Universal gravitational constant, which is more urgent
for up to discussions than the word mixing with "mass", "weight",
"density" or whatever.

Have you ever read any philosophy?
Kant, Hegel, Platon... Believe you should start here somewhere.

Physics is the second step after philosophy.
