Neither!!! They both have the same mass at 1 kg. However, the feathers will occupy a greater volume.

10 kg is greater than 6 kg. kg is the unit of mass. Hence feather has more mass than lead in this case.

The density of a material is defined as its mass per unit volume. A given volume of lead has more mass than a given volume of feathers. In common usage mass often refers to weight, but that is not a very exact usage of it. For this question it may be useful however to think of a given weight of lead per volume and a given weight of feathers.If you have a kg of lead, that is a small piece, a kg of feathers is a large amount.So for a given volume, say a cubic centimeter, the weight of lead is much more than the weight of feathers.

Neither. They both have the same mass. "kg" is a measurement of mass. If you meant volume (the space taken up by the object), the feathers would have the greater volume.

Because sand is a more dense substance than feathers - it has a larger mass-to-volume ratio.

Although they both weigh the same, the kg of feathers would be much more unwieldy, due to its volume. If the feathers were being carried in an open container, on a windy day, when you reached your destination, you would most likely have many less feathers than when you started!

They both weigh the same: 1kg = 1kg. The kg of butter has a greater volume and the kg of lead has a higher density.

10 kg is greater than 6 kg. kg is the unit of mass. Hence feather has more mass than lead in this case.

One kilogram of lead is denser than one kilogram of feathers, so it takes up less space. This makes it easier to carry the lead compared to the same weight of feathers, which would occupy much more volume and be more cumbersome.

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 ;) )

kg is the greater volume.

Because sand is a more dense substance than feathers - it has a larger mass-to-volume ratio.

4.56 kg of what? 4.56 kg of hydrogen has a different volume than 4.56 kg of lead.
