What is equal to the mass of kilogram?

A liter of water has approximately a mass of one kilogram.

What is a stone's mass in water?

The mass of a stone in water is the mass of the stone outside water. The mass of an object is always its mass. (This assumes we are not discussing the theory of relativity.) On Earth, or the Moon or in water or not, mass is mass. What might be relevant, however, is the weight of a stone in water compared to the weight of a stone outside the water. Weight and mass are different. If you hold a stone in water and hold the same stone in air, you can feel a difference in the force you must apply to support the stone. In water, the stone feels a buoyant force equal the the weight of the water displaced. That is Archimedes principle. There is a difference in the apparent weight of a stone in water and a stone out of water equal to the eight of the water displaced.

What will be the effect of displaced water if load is added into ship float in ocean?

More water will be displaced equal to the load placed on the ship as long as the ship continues to float. This is not equal in volume, but equal in mass to that of the load.

If 90 percent of an object is floating below water what is its density?

Let's say the object has mass M and volume V. An object floats by displacing an amount of water equal to the object's mass. So water equal to 90% of the volume of the object has mass equal to the whole object, or M = 0.9V * 1g/ml or M = 0.9V Since density is mass divided by volume, or d = M/V, density of object = M/V = 0.9 g/ml.

How do you prove that the mass of a substance of a density is equal to the volume of water?

Submerse the object in a completely full bucket. measure the volume of the displaced water due to the object. Multiply the volume of the displaced water by the density of the object to give mass.

How does the mass diffusivity of a gas mixture changes with temperature and pressure?

mass diffusivity increases with increasing temperature and decreases as pressure increases.

Relative humdity is a ratio of what?

The mass of water vapour in a given quantity of air to the maximum mass of water vapour that it could hold - at the specific temperature and pressure.

How will you show that air has mass?

There are many ways to prove air has mass. One of them is : Take some water in a closed vessel and heat it till all the water boils. As we know when there is no transfer of particles mass remains constant. Therefore, the mass of the water vapour (air) is equal to the mass of the water taken. Hence, it is proved that air has mass.

What refers to the amount of water vapour in the air?

Relative Humidity is the measure of water vapour in air. It is the ratio of the actual water vapour in air divided by the maximum amount the water the air can hold at the existing temperature and pressure. It tells how fast or slow the water on the body or in clothes will evaporate or in otherwords is the air dry or humid. Absolute measure of water vapour in air is called specific humidity. It can be measured as ratio of mass of water and mass of dry air.

What is specific humidity and relative humidity?

Relative humidity compares the amount of water vapour present in the air with the amount of water vapour that would be present in the same air at saturation. Specific humidity is the mass of water vapour present per kg of total air.

What is the physical significance of the thermal diffusivity and How is it defined and what?

Thermal diffusivity signifies the rate of heat transfer into the solid. If it is higher then less time is required for the heat to penetrate into the solid. it is th property of a solid. If we know the mass density,specific heat and thermal conductivity coefficient then we can determine its thermal diffusivity.

The ratio of thermal boundary layer thickness to the concentration boundary layer thickness is?

Lewis No = thermal diffusivity / mass diffusivity .So, NLe = thermal boundary layer thickness/ Concentration boundary layer thickness

Does water vapour take up more space than the same mass of liquid water?

All gasses take more place than the same mass of its fluid or steady fase. Here: vapour is not a gas, it is consisted of very small fluid parts!

What is the significance of troposphere?

It contains 70-80% of the total mass of the earth's atmosphere and 99% of water vapour.
