It is not. They have exactly the same mass and so must have the same weight.

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.

They total the same, a handful of sand for example would weigh more than a handful of feathers but because they both add up to a specific weight neither is heavier than the other there would just be more feathers than sand..

The mass of feathers is far greater than the lead. amount = mass So you will have a huge pile of feathers compared to a small chunk of lead to equal a pound

True

A pound of feathers because feathers are less dense than lead and therefore take up more volume for the same mass.

No, both weigh a kilogram

Lead is unquestionably heavier than an equal volume of feathers.

A fluid ounce of water weighs slightly more than a dry ounce (1 fluid ounce of water weighs 1.043 dry ounces). Therefore a fluid ounce of water is heavier than a dry ounce of flour (or anything else for that matter). Note that a fluid ounce of something else might NOT be heavier. A fluid ounce of lead is much heavier than a fluid ounce of feathers!

are you being serious, if you are no, 15 is not heavier than 18 pounds of feathers.

Lead is heavier than iron.

Because lighter and heavier refer to an objects weight - which has nothing to do with density ! For example - a kilo of feathers is heavier than half a kilo of lead - but lead is more dense !

Lead is much heavier than stainless steel.

Of course not.A small jar of lead will be much heavier than a slightly larger jar of feathers.

Yes, uranium is more dense (heavier) than lead.

The feathers "take up more room" than the lead. It would be hard to compress the feathers to make them as dense as lead. The feathers have more volume.

No. The specific gravity of lead is 11.35 and the specific gravity of diamond is 3.5, which is above average, but not heavier than lead.

birds have feathers and not fur because fur is heavier than feathers and would restrict them from being able to fly
