Mass of an AppleWhat 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.

To figure out the density of an apple you have to know the mass and the volume. To find the mass use a triple balance beam and to find the volume use a graduated cylinder. After you have the mass and the volume, do mass divided by volume and you should get the density. :)

No because now part of the apple is missing so the mass would be less. The total mass of the apple is not changed, but part of the mass is now in the biter's mouth.

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 you'll have your answer in grams/milliliters.

depends on the size and type of the apple.

"Pound" is a unit of force. It's not a unit of mass. The mass of an apple depends on the individual apple. If it weighs, say, 8 ounces on Earth, then its mass is 0.5 poundmass, or 0.015625 slug.

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.

Yes an apple takes up more space than a paper towel so there for an apple has a larger mass.

The apple has mass. The Earth has mass. The apple falls down, and the Earth "falls" up. The Earth's motion is not measurable. The apple's motion is.

yes, you dumm o a banana has more mass than a apple (dumm pips) -_-

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 = 8.219 * 10^-25 (m/s)/s

The apple would most likely have a mass of 250 grams

on a apple tree in apple land

The apple as too the Earth has mass. Both are attracted to each other. However, the mass of the Earth is soooo much greater than the apple that you do not see the attraction.

You can find apple in such foods as:apple sauceapple puddingapple dumplingsapple pieapple tartapple crumbleapple cobblerapple strudelapple muffinsapple danish pastrybaked pork and appleapple- stuffed chicken breast

You can find apple trees in a park and in a flower shop.

Because the apple has a smaller mass than the watermelon does.

You can find apples in: 1 An apple tree! 2 A grocery store

Because gravity is a property of mass and the Earth has more mass than the apple.

The mass of an apple is described in grams, the weight of the same apple is described in Newtons. This is the force that a mass exerts due to the local attraction of gravity. A gram mass is consistent throughout the universe, a gram force changes, Unfortunately the weight of an apple is often expressed as a gram without noting that this is gram force.

as an upgrade to the Apple II to appeal to the mass market instead of just geeks

Grams, beacuase that would be like a ton of milligrams and .0000... Kilograms.

Because gravity is a property of mass and the Earth has more mass than the apple.

What do you use to find mass

He did not find or make Apple.

It's physical! If you change the size, it's still an apple!
