Since weight is the measure of an object's gravitational pull, the compressed air does not weigh more. The difference is in the density of the air. A tank filled with compressed air will weigh more than a tank that is filled with air at normal atmospheric pressure.

Why do objects weigh more in vacuum than in air?

objects weigh more in vacuum than in air due to buoyancy of air. objects displace air equal to their volume and this reduces their weight. in vacuum, there is no displacement.

How much water do you put in a water rocket?

Not more than half full as a general rule. You must leave room for the compressed air that will push water out of the rocket. Air can be compressed, but water cannot.

What exactly is compressed air?

Air that is held inside one of several types of special containers at a decreased volume is known as compressed air. For the air to be compressed, its pressure inside the container must be at a higher pressure than that of the atmospheric air outside of it.

Does warm air weigh more than cold air?

no cold air is heavier because it sinks and hot air rises

Compressed air. Most people have to use cans of air, but I have an air compressor with an air dryer on it. It will blow FAR more dust out of a computer than a can of air will.

What is an Air Power Tool?

An air power tool is a type of tool, which is powered by electricity and uses air to do work. More often than not the air is compressed to provide pressure, such as an air compressor.

Why does cold air weigh more than hot air?

It is denser because the molecules are closer together.

Why you weigh more in the air than in the water?

because there is less gravity in water

Which categories is usage of compressed air and gas divided into?

The three major categories of usage for compressed air and gas are: compressed air and gas for process services, compressed air for power, and compressed air for general industrial applications.

Does compressed air transfer heat better than normal air?

Yes. The molecules of oxygen and nitrogen, when compressed, are closer together and the heat will transfer from one molecule to the next more easily than at normal pressure. It is wise to remember there is a danger that heating a vessel containing compressed air will increase the internal pressure even further, and may cause the vessel to rupture.
