Lead is more dense than feathers.
It doesn't matter how much you have of either one. A chip of lead is
more dense than a 10-mile convoy of trucks loaded with feathers.
both have the same mass, but the ton of feathers will have a bigger volume.
Something that weighs a ton is equal to other things that weigh a ton, therefore a ton of anything is equal to a ton of anything else. Even if it's feathers versus lead or cotton versus cement.
There are 2000 pounds in a ton (US) or 2240 pounds in a ton (UK). It does not matter if it is lead, gold, paper, or feathers - a ton is a ton.
think we're talking perception here... eg which is the heaviest - a ton of feathers or a ton of lead ??....
None. A bushel is a unit of volume, a ton is a unit of mass.
Lead is denser than feathers, therefore it would be smaller for the same weight. (feathers may be safer in the long run due to health effects ;) )
They have the same mass.
A ton of feathers. If you are looking to the actual number of feathers in a ton then the answer would be: unknown but millions.
They are both equal in weight.
Lead is denser.
well...they both weigh the same if there is a ton of feathers and a ton of concrete:)
They have the same mass. They have the same mass assuming that they are together in the same gravitational field. If the feathers are on the moon, they will have the greater mass by far.I AM A GREAT BIG BUM HEAD!
Its pennies why because the pennies are more denser because it has more paritcles and the feathers are lighter.
depends on the material you are measuring, a cubic yard of feathers may not weigh a ton, but a cubic yard of lead would.
Many or few. What materials? Feathers or lead. Water or mercury.
Lead is denser than iron.
Can not convert tons to gallons without knowing what it is a ton of... feathers or lead? That's a wrong answer. A ton is a ton irrespective of the commodity. I think you're involving "volume" or cube and over-complicating it. Also, there was a clue in the question. Neither feathers nor lead are generally calculated in US Gallons and it's fair to say the the commodity involved is a liquid
It takes two thousand pounds of feathers to make one ton. Depending on the size of the birds from which the feathers are gathered from would determine how many feathers would make a ton.
Depends on how heavy the feathers are
A ton is a measurement of the weight of an object. No matter what the object is, if two items weigh a ton, then they are equal. A ton of bricks weighs exactly the same as a ton of feathers.
One metric (or "long" ) ton of anything, gold, lead or feathers, is 1000 kg. Sometimes this is called a "tonne" to distinguish it from a "short ton" which is 2000 pounds.
they are both equal in weight, there are jsut more feathers. Bot still weigh the same as a ton is a measurement of weight
