4) Feathers are weighed using the avoirdupois pound which is approximately 454 grams whereas gold is weighed using troy pound which is approximately 373 grams. So feathers are heavier!

However the weight also depends on the gravitational field. Pranshu Gaba · 1 year, 11 months ago

1) The dates are in BC.

2) Stairs.

3) They were married. "every SINGLE person"

4) To destroy the fun (I'm sorry though), a pound of feathers is heavier. It's the answer to this old problem of mine, and go see the solutions why.

5) IDK... (is it somewhat related to the dress? lol just kidding) Jeremy Bansil · 1 year, 11 months ago

The answer to the second may also be the "weight" Ravi Dwivedi · 1 year, 5 months ago

Ans 1- Tom was 15 years old in 1985 BC. Therefore 5 years later it will be 1980 BC when he'll be 20.

Ans 2- Temperature

Ans 3- They both were in a relationship, the others who died were 'SINGLE' persons.

Ans 4-Gold's weight is measured in a different system (troy system) therefore pound of feather is heavier.

Ans 5- A soft toy of a zebra made by the company, Black and White shown in a black and white TV, and the TV's outer design is Black and white, and the person sees it with a black and blue lens. Arpit MIshra · 1 year, 11 months ago

  • Simple.Tom is from tom and jerry (anything can happen)

  • ph levels or chameleon (see my last point)

  • As you can see @Sandeep Bhardwaj sir is reading news--->"Every single person " died.And "2 people" survived (like ramesh died and mahesh survived.)

  • Once I bought a lottery ticket for 1 pound I won gold and i felt heavy and my friend came second and he got a flamingo and he felt heavier.So feathers are heavier.(Remember both were of equal values = a pound).

  • Chameleon is black and white, and black and white, and black and white, and black and white, and black and blue !. conclusion \(\boxed{chameleon=what}\) obviously coz chameleon = chameleon=what?

@Harsh Shrivastava Even when weighed in air, they will have the same mass. The reason the feather floats in air when dropped is not due to buoyant force, but due to air resistance, which impedes its fall by resisting it's downward motion. Raghav Vaidyanathan · 1 year, 11 months ago

@Raghav Vaidyanathan Oh thanks, fixed! Harsh Shrivastava · 1 year, 11 months ago
