There will be more feathers but the weight will be the same :10 pounds of feathers 10 pounds of gold 10 pounds of each &lt;&gt;&lt;&gt;&lt;&gt; In MOST cases, would agree with the above, but GOLD is different. Gold, Platinum, and all precious metals are measured in TROY ounces and TROY pounds, where feathers are measured in ordinary (avoirdupois) pounds. A TROY pound has 12 ounces instead of 16, and is not as heavy as a standard pound. This is the rare case of a pound NOT being a pound.

They are both the same. They both weigh 100lb. However, 100lb of feathers weighs more than 100lb of gold, as feathers are measured on the Avoirdupois scale which has 16 ounces to the pound, and Gold, being a precious metal, is weighed on the Troy scale where there are only 12 ounces to the pound.

Trick question? The 60 kilograms (a little more than 132 pounds) of feathers weigh more!

It depends on what sort of feathers e.g peacock or pigeon. And it depends on the size of the brick but I would say the gold brick would be heavier. Hope this helps! :)

They both weigh 1 kg. Mass is also the same. Volume would be much larger for the kg of feathers.

"Depends on how much gold and how many feathers you have. " I believe the riddle is usually "which weighs more - a pound of gold or a pound of feather?" The answer is that they weigh the same amount - they are both a pound. However, one cannot answer your question without further details since we clearly do not know how much of each object we have and how heavy it is.
