# How do you find the mass of an apple?

## Mass of an Apple

What a tricky question! You can easily measure the WEIGHT of an apple... or the downward force the MASS of the apple excerts in it's gravitational field on earth.Weight is a very good approximation of MASS... but to determine EXACT mass is something you'd not be able to do in the "backyard."

Weight and mass are considered equivilent on the earth's surface. That is something that weighs 1 kilogram on earth has one kilogram of mass. It will only weigh 160 grams on the moon but will still have 1 kilogram of mass. To estimate the mass of an apple without a scale is to see how much water it displaces.

### How do you find density of an apple?

D = M/V so you could get a measuring cup and fill it partway with water. Then put the apple in. Because apples float you will will have to hold the apple underwater with a toothpick or needle (this will slightly change your measurement). Measure the new place the water is at. This is the volume (in ml). Then to find the mass you will have to weight the apple. Divide mass by volume and…

### What is the mass of a red apple?

Hmm, well it all depends on the size of the apple. Exactly the same as the mass of a green apple of exactly the same size and density. Half the mass of a golden apple of exactly twice the size and the same density. One quarter of the mass of a Northern spy apple of twice the size and double the density.

### When you drop the apple identifies all the forces actions on it as it falls and the corresponding reaction forces?

the apple and the earth accelerate toward each other. force on apple (and earth) f = ((G * earth mass * apple mass) / distance ^2 ) . earth mass = 5.974 * 10^24 kg apple mass = 0.5 kg distance (between centre of gravities) = 6 371 000 metres . f = 4.909938 newtons . acceleration of apple = f / mass apple = 9.8199 (m/s)/s acceleration of earth = f / mass earth…

### What is the mass of an apple in grams?

Some apple masses A small apple is about 100g. Larger ones might be twice that. Apparently the largest apple ever recorded was about 3lbs , which is about 1360g. Using that same page, that says that Americans eat on average 19.6 lbs of apples or 65 apples a year, that gives a mass of 136g per apple eaten by Americans on average.
