Weight or Mass?Made a small page on Weight or Mass? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20070601 16:47:01
Re: Weight or Mass?Nope, can't see any mistakes. I'm pretty sure that page is fully correct. This will be a great help to people, as a lot of them get mixed up and confused between the two key words. #3 20070601 18:27:40
Re: Weight or Mass?Agreed. Very nicely done page. One minor quibble  weight is technically measured in Newtons and not kg. But then again, putting the measurements of weight in kg makes the explanation much easier to follow. Maybe there should be a small note somewhere on the page though. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #5 20070601 22:53:18
Re: Weight or Mass?Nice page, MathsIsFun! Character is who you are when no one is looking. #6 20070602 04:56:00
Re: Weight or Mass?Nice! I see clearly now, the universe have the black dots, Thus I am on my way of inventing this remedy... #7 20070602 08:15:44
Re: Weight or Mass?Yes, I think a note about Newtons is needed. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman
