What is the volume of the Empire State Building in tons?
Tonnes are not a unit of volume. Therefore the volume in tonnes of the empire state building (or of a ton of steel for that matter) does not exist. The volume is 37 million cubic feet or about 1.04 million cubic meters. (for an interesting volume comparison the volume of the ESB is about 6.54 million barrels of oil)

365,000 tons *this is WRONG. 365,000 tons would be a WEIGHT. Mass * gravity =weight Therefore, take weight 365, and divide by gravity which is9.8m/s^2. However, first you need to convert 365,000 tonnes to metric system. While 1 ton is roughly equal to 907kg, this relationship isinadequate as we…ight and mass are not the samething. ** edit 2 - nope you are correct 365,000 tons seems to be a goodapproximation. * is wrong. A ton and a Tonne and a 1000 kg are allunits of Mass and all almost the same. Weight is a force (the thingthe ground under the building feels pushing down on it) andmeasured in N and is as stated: Mass * gravity = weight. So themass of the building (the sum of all its atoms) will stay constantno matter where you build the building. The weight however willdepend on which planet you build it on! . Mass on earth: 365,000,000 kg. Mass on Moon: 365,000,000 kg (still the same atoms). weight on earth (approx): 365,000,000 * 10 Newtons. weight on moon: 365,000,000 * 1.6 Newtons (84% less!).
