Asked in Math and Arithmetic
Why do a fifty gram metal piece feel heavier than a fifty grams of cotton wool?
It is the pressure rather than the mass that feels greater. The mass of a 50 gram metal piece acts on a small surface area and so exerts a greater pressure. If you were to put a 50g piece of metal in a string bag, or a 50g ball of wool, and lift the bas using only the string and in such a way that you could not see the size of bag's content, you would not know the difference.

Why is a bag of nails have more inertia than an equal sized bag of cotton?
Size generally refers to volume in respect to containers. As a result a bag filled with nails will have more mass than an equal sized bag filled with cotton. Inertia is proportional to mass and the velocity the mass is travelling at, or alternately the mass and the acceleration it is subjected to. As a consequence a bag filled with nails travelling at the same velocity (or subjected to the same acceleration) as an equal sized bag filled with cotton has a greater inertia due to its greater mass.
