## Gold or silver? 12

What weighs more, a pound of silver or a pound of gold?

Neither

Pound is a unit of weight.

Surajdubey

Both will weigh same..!! After all their weight is 1 pound..!!

Jango

Wtf

Ravi

I guess this one falls more into the "riddle" category than "chemistry".

R. Crabb

Sure, but which has more mass?

R. Crabb

Hint: it's not the same

Ravi

If you go down the path of differentiating weight vs mass, you would have to assume that gravity is the same when weighing both elements.

R. Crabb

No, it comes from the fact that the force from gravity depends on the distance between the center of mass of the two objects in question, because gold is denser than silver, its center of mass will be slightly closer to the center of earth's mass.

Ravi

Squeamish

Only if the two pieces of metal are sitting at the same altitude and have shapes that put the centers of mass relative to each other in the way you described. The original question has no verbiage that would restrict the silver from being, for example, on the moon.

Rosie

yup both weigh the same

Squeamish

I prefer the similar:

Which weighs more, a pound of gold or a pound of feathers?

A "pound" of feathers is 16 avoirdupois ounces, which weighs more than a "pound" of gold, which is 12 troy ounces.

Ravi Trivedi

+1 for use of the word "avoirdupois".

anurag sharma
