A pound of bricks and a pound of feathers weigh the same because they both weigh one pound. The difference lies in their volume, with bricks being denser and taking up less space compared to feathers.

Feathers

Speaking from a weight standpoint a pound of feathers weighs the same as a pound of iron. They each weigh 1 pound. However it take many more feathers to weight a pound then chunks (ingots) of iron.

Neither. They both weigh 1 pound.

They weigh the same since a pound of feathers; No matter how much there are, weigh a pound. And a pound of iron, No matter how heavy iron is, weighs a pound. Therefore; the weight of a pound of feathers is equivalent to the weight of a pound of iron.

No a lb of bricks and a pound of feathers is still a pound same with concrete and iron

No. They weigh the same (each weighs a pound). The difference is their densities because a pound of iron has got a much smaller volume than a pound of feathers.

a pound of feathers

A pound of feathers has more mass. The are lighter so they would take up more space to make a pound.

They are both exactly the same - they weigh a pound. However, the feathers will take up a lot more space (about 0.77942 litres for every kg of feathers - or 779 cm3/kg) whereas the lead would be much smaller (about 0.12700 itres for every kg of iron - or 127 cm3/kg).

THEY ARE THE SAME DONT TRY TO TRICK ME SORRY ALL CAPS
