# What Is Mass?

## Recommended Posts

1 elephant = 1 mouse

1 rock = 1 cup of tea

1 Einstein = 1 idiot

I mean, like, they're ALL ONES, amirite?

It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt, :phones:

But only your last one would be correct. :D

What will get you into trouble is the combination of these three things:     and then:     in conjunction with:   You don't get to claim ignorance to justify demanding others accept your novel theori

If anyone wants a laugh, take a read of the first few pages of this thread from another forum, in which I encountered this guy under the name "theorist-constant", before he was banned: http://www.scif

Good! You can read a dictionary! :cheer:   Unfortunately you've proven quite well that you do not know how to apply definitions to the real world and use-cases thereof. So:   :umno: Properties are n

Red and the apple are two different things, how is that xxxxxxxxx?

Are you trying to say that 1 proton mass does not have 1 proton charge ?

Of course I am not saying that. I am saying that the statement "we have two red" is meaningless. Red is an attribute, it is not a countable object. If you don't understand that, then you don't even understand how language works.

Charge is an attribute, do you not understand that? ( I could go into light wave-lengths if you like i.e red.)

1 proton mass = 1 proton charge

The amount of charges is directly proportional to the amount of Proton and electron masses.?  Could you now I have explained agree with that?

The amount of charges is directly proportional to the amount of Proton and electron masses.

You obviously do not even understand how a simple equation works. You cannot equate a proton mass with a proton charge.

1 proton mass = 1 proton charge

So to confirm, the only equations you agree with here are:

1 Einstein = 1 idiot

1 proton mass = 1 proton charge

The first I understand because we know you think you're the equivalent of Einstein, the second of course is your uh, "strongly held belief."

But then why wouldn't you believe that

1 elephant = 1 mouse

I mean, that is what you're arguing. Why would you provide a disproof of your thesis?

I guess, it's you're "just asking questions."

But thank you for agreeing with us that your postulate that 1 proton mass = 1 proton charge is just plain silly. :cheer:

A few days ago I lost my weapon of Math instruction... my trusty pocket calculator. :phones:

I am not in a position that I could ever deem myself correct when I have no relative agreement from Physicists.   I think we both know that an elephant does not equate to a mouse  or does a rock equate to a cup of tea.

I do not think Einstein was an idiot, he used what he had to work with, we use what he gave us and develop that further , without Einsteins notions I would not have my own notions and questions about those notions.

I pulled out the statement because that is the one you intended me to notice more being the only possible true statement.

An elephant has different mass than a mouse so can not be equal.

added-  1 proton mass = 1 proton charge remains true regardless what we say

You claim to be here to learn something - if you continue to believe that nonsense, I'm out of here.

Do you know anything about dimensions? (In terms of M,L,T and Q)

Huh?   How many charges does a single proton have?

And you mean xyzt don't you?

added- Ok, I guess you didn't mean XYZt

Thank you for something new to look at.

Ok, I got it, mass , length, time and charge.

I suppose that is what I have been discussing?

No I don't. I mean the dimensions of a physical quantity in terms of L,M,T and Q

I realised that and edited my post sorry.

The point is that an equation in physics A = B only has meaning if A and B have identical dimensions in terms of L,T,M and Q.

So the equation

1 proton mass = 1 proton charge

is meaningless

Oh you mean you want me to put something like

M1=Q1

M2=Q2

M1+M2=Q

Wrong again. M has dimensions of L^0.T^0.M^+1.Q^0.

IT IS MEANINGLESS TO EQUATE IT TO A CHARGE. What don't you understand here?

Well, this statement, and the multiple failed attempts to get you to understand why it's gibberish has earned this thread's movement into the Silly Claims Forum.

Because past behavior is used in judging you, it's likely we'll send everything you post there.

Sorry.

If I cut you off, chances are you handed me the scissors, :phones:

In all due respect, if I am misinterpreting the information , please correct the misinterpretation, I can't see why you would use that against me?

You think it is a silly claim that 1=1?

1=0 would be a silly claim .

Your equation is meaningless to me because I do not understand that.  Why do you think it is meaningless to equate mass to charge, by adding 1 mass you are also adding 1 charge?

There are levels to it, you separate or quantify when you use math I.e. e=mc^2. However, charge is like mass, gravity is universal, & the term mass can be requantified to include charge.
