With a quick on-line search, I found that at 60° F, water weighs 8.338 pounds

per gallon. That's 15.35 fluid ounces per pound. (rounded)

To the level of precision that I'm working at right now, we can assume the density

of air to be zero, at least by comparison with the water, so that's your answer:

15.35 fluid ounces, or in round numbers, let's just say: 1 pint of air to lift 1 pound.

Why is there a 45 pound weight in a gym?

Instead of adding a 25 pound weight, and then 2 ten pound weights, it would be much easier to add a 45 pound weight. A 45 pound weight is standard in every gym, and not everyone can lift 10 more pounds if there was a fifty pound weight (five extra pounds on each side totals to 10 more pounds to lift).

What was the total weight of the Hindenburg?

I work it out to be 130.1 tones. I worked this out thus:- Hindenburg carried a gas volume of 7,062,000 cubic feet of Hydrogen. This volume of hydrogen, would produce 242.2 tons of gross lift and as Hindenburg's useful lift (the lift left after you subtract the weight of the structure from the gross lift) is documented at 112.1 tons. Thus 242.2-112.1 = 130.1 tones (the weight of the craft).

Yes it does. The more weight that there is in the rocket, the more energy it takes to lift off. Its the same as if you raised your hand above your head and it's empty. Put a ten pound weight in it and you have to exert more energy to lift it.
