The land mass is heavier even tough the sea covers 2/3 of the earth's surface it still has land under the sea hence it is heavier...

== == == == Land mass will be heavier than water because it is more dense

The terms Land Breeze and Sea Breeze refer to the directions from which the breeze comes. The causes of the two different breezes are the relative differences in temperatures of the masses from which they originate. During the day, the land is generally heated to temperatures that exceed the temperature of the adjacent sea causing a flow of air from the cooler sea towards the warmer land where the air is rising. This is called a Sea Breeze because the air is moving from the sea towards the land. Conversely, in the evening as the land mass cools more rapidly than the adjacent water, the flow is reversed and air from the cooler land mass moves towards the warmer (and hence rising) air mass over the sea. This, then, is called a Land Breeze as it moves from the land towards the sea.

you are heavier on the mountain. why? because you are exposed to more mass.

Air has mass therefore the balloon is heavier with air

Harbors form when there is land movement due to volcanic or glacial action and there is a sea level change. The land mass movements leave a deep water mass that is surrounded by land on either side.

There are rules and consideration to be taken into account to tell which element is heavier. The mass of an element is considered by its number of proton and neutrons. The mass of an electron is equivalent to about 0.00005 of the proton which has a mass of 1. So yeah! more proton and neutron, the mass of the element will be heavier.In this case, the mass of lithium is heavier than the mass of helium because lithium has more protons and neutrons. If You look into the period table, Helium is 2nd and lithium is 3rd which is heavier.
