## What are the main differences between solids liquids and gases?

Three states of matter exist – solid, liquid, and gas. Solids have a definite shape and volume. Liquids have a definite volume, but take the shape of the container. Gases have no definite shape or volume.

## Which is heavier a pound of cotton or a pound of stone?

Both weigh exactly the same: one pound. However, the stone is more DENSE* meaning the volume of 1lb of stone is much less than the volume of 1lb of cotton.

## How is density related to hot air balloons?

Hot air balloons rise into the air because the density of the air (warmer air) inside the balloon is less dense than the air outside the balloon (cooler air). The balloon and the basket displaces a fluid that is heavier than the balloon and the basket, so it has a buoyant force acting on the system.

## Does light occupy space?

Light do not occupy space, have no mass or volume, and therefore are not considered matter.

## Does air weigh anything?

It might not seem like it, but air has weight. Anything with mass has weight, and we know air has mass because (for example) we can feel it when the wind blows. The total weight of the atmosphere exerts a pressure of about 14.7 pounds per square inch at sea level.

## Which is heavier a pound of feathers or a pound of gold?

The feathers are weighed using a system called “avoirdupois” with which there are 16 ounces in a pound. If you normalize everything to mass a pound of feathers is 454 grams and a pound of gold is 373 grams, therefore the feathers are technically heavier.

## Is air really there?

Since air is invisible we easily forget that it is all around us. When we blow air in a balloon, we can feel the air pushing on the balloon. It’s the same with a tire or basketball. When we sit in front of a fan, we can actually feel the air molecules moving in the same direction.

## Which is heavier a pound of feathers or bricks?

So this question is kinda tricky, But the answer is that they weigh the same. Because it is already mentioned that a feather weighs 1 pound and so a brick also weighs 1 pound. So, their weigh should be equal but there might be more feathers in 1 pound.

## Can air take up space?

Air takes up space because it is made of particles. Air in our atmosphere is made of mostly nitrogen and oxygen. Since it has mass, or stuff, it also has volume. The density, or thickness, of air changes the farther away you get from Earth.

## How much do bricklayers get paid?

## Do air has mass?

Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space. Although air has mass, a small volume of air, such as the air in the balloons, doesn’t have too much. Air just isn’t very dense. We can show that the air in the balloon has mass by building a balance.

## What is the difference between the density of solids liquids and gases?

In general, solids are denser than liquids, which are denser than gases. . The particles in the solid are touching with very little space between them. The particles in a liquid usually are still touching but there are some spaces between them. The gas particles have big distances between them.

## What is heavier a pound of feathers?

Abstract. “Which weighs more–a pound of lead or a pound of feathers?” The seemingly naive answer to the familiar riddle is the pound of lead. The correct answer, of course, is that they weigh the same amount.

## Why does a hot air balloon float?

Hot air balloons use hot air to create buoyancy, which results in allowing the balloon to float and carry passengers riding in the basket. The hot air inside of the balloon is less dense than the surrounding air.

## Does air give shape to things?

 Air gives shape to things.  Get a weighing machine.  Put the deflated ball on the machine first then fill air and put the blown up ball on the machine.  The ball with air in it will be heavier.

## Which is heavier 100 pounds of bricks or 100 pounds of feathers?

100 pounds of bricks occupy very less area compared to feathers. Thus, you apply much greater force to lift the box of feathers compared to bricks. Due to the larger force you can lift the box of feathers easily which makes you think that it is lighter.

## Is a feather heavier than a brick?

They would both be equal in weight. The difference wil be in the density. You would need a lot more feathers to make up a ton than you would need bricks, because bricks are more dense than feathers. As a result, a ton of feathers will be larger in size, and the bricks will take up less space.

## What are the 4 types of feathers?

Feather types

• Wing feathers. The wing feathers specialized for flight are characterized by uniform windproof surfaces, or vanes, on either side of the central shaft that are created by an interlocking microstructure.
• Tail feathers.
• Contour feathers.
• Semiplume.
• Down.
• Filoplume.
• Bristle.

## How heavy is a feather?

0.0082 grams Ornithologists commonly measure birds’ feathers as a proportion of total body weight. A 5-pound broiler chicken’s feathers weigh about 74 grams or 2.6 ounces, or 3.3 percent of its body weight. Since that chicken has some 9,000 feathers, each one weighs about 0.0082 grams.
