# What happens to air as weight?

## What happens to air as weight?

Air has no weight when it is free to move from one place to another, but it contains weight when it is filled inside any container because the air inside a container compresses by the walls of balloons, which gives weight to the air inside the balloon.

### Why does the air have weight?

Anything with mass has weight, and we know air has mass because (for example) we can feel it when the wind blows. This is because the parcel of air is embedded in surrounding air that has the same density (mass per unit volume).

#### Does air effect weight?

Does the pressure exerted by a column of air cause changes in a person’s weight? Actually, a person would weigh less in a denser atmosphere. The pressure exerted by a column of air is the same in all directions, so a heavy atmosphere does not have weight since it pushes just as much up as it does down.

How can we say air has weight?

take a balance to measure weights…just take a scale for this experiment and a holder to hold it..then two balloons and fill air of same quantity and amount..tie both the ends at the top parts of the balance and observe..you will see any one of them will lose air from it faster..and the other balloon with required …

How do we weigh air?

If your container is special with a piston which can be moved in and out and held there (maybe you can do this with screw threads), you can put one atmosphere of air in a two cubic-foot container, weight it, and then squeeze the air inside down to one cubic foot and weigh that.

## Does air have weight experiment?

Air does, in fact, have weight, and here’s a simple way you can prove it. You’ll need two identical balloons, a string, and a dowel. The side with the inflated balloon hangs lower than the other side. You have demonstrated that air has weight!

### Is it true that air has mass and weight?

Air is the sea of particles in which we live. Wrapped around us like a blanket, students sometimes mistake air as being without mass or weight. This easy weather demonstration proves to younger students that air does indeed have mass! In this experiment, two balloons, filled with air, will be used to create a balance.

#### Why does an empty balloon show that air has mass?

Why It Works. The empty balloon’s air escapes into the surrounding room and is no longer contained within the balloon. The compressed air in the balloon has a greater weight than the surrounding air. While the weight itself cannot be measured in this way, the experiment gives indirect evidence that air has mass.

Why do we measure our own weight on an airplane?

Weight is the force generated by the gravitational attraction of the earth on the airplane. We are more familiar with weight than with the other forces acting on an airplane, because each of us have our own weight which we can measure every morning on the bathroom scale.

How is the weight of compressed air measured?

The compressed air in the balloon has a greater weight than the surrounding air. While the weight itself cannot be measured in this way, the experiment gives indirect evidence that air has mass.
