One kilogram weighs numerically the same as it will free fall; on the
surface of any planet. That's 1/g.

It's volume depends on the ambient pressure at that location.

Heck no. Algebra got the better of you again. You'll do better to write
out the words.

Oh, and of course, the weight will vary with location.


Yes, a tiny bit. And this is why it's not the volume standard.

And so your point is...

Despite there being no "standard" weight or volume, the weight density
divided by the volume of any quantity or mass of matter, on Earth is a
constant! Didn't you straighten me out on that PD?

My point is that if everything in the store has weight and volume, why
label it with grams and kilograms too? Why not just price and label
everything per its weight, or volume?

All good ccoks know how to check the weight, and volume of anything.

Apparently not well enough.


Because you'd need both, weight AND volume, to specify how much stuff
you bought. (How much stuff being the mass.) And I'd MUCH rather list
one value than two.


They also know how to check the mass. You might not, but most do.
