|Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Joe points out places where size=mass and expresses hope that this is a universal phenomenon: |
blipey: In what world does the word "size" mean "weight"?
Joe: In boxing, UFC, wrestling- most sports. I am sure it has a bearing in mechanics too, as well as electronics. I am sure in science it is perfectly normal to answer the question of size with that of mass... Size is both. Educated people have a big word- we use DIMENSIONS- if that is what we wish to convey.
Of course, boxers are sorted by weight class, which Joe attempts to define as a combination of height, weight, and anywhere from 13 - 73% reach?
|The boxer's size is a combo- height/ weight with a little reach thrown in.|
But I get the trick question- there isn't any such thing as one molecule of water. -JoeG
