I have tried to protect your waning intellectual credibility by gently nudging you toward a basic understanding of certain elementary scientific laws. But in your evolutionary hypnotic state, self centered egomania and pitiful ignorance it is sigh perhaps impossible. So in the interest of your colleagues and your community I must expose your stupidity and apparent dishonesty by posting from one of many possible authoritative sources, in this case Michigan State University and their very fine chemical engineering engineering school.
Weight - Weight is the force exerted on an object by gravitational attraction. The weight of an object can be determined using Newton's second law, as shown below:
W = m . g/gc
Here W represents the weight of the object of mass m, and g represents the acceleration of gravity (9.81 m/s2 or 32.174 ft/s2). Based upon this equation, it is easy to see that the weight of a 1 kg mass is 9.81 N, and the weight of 1 lbm is 1 lbf.
Thus the Phd types at MSU confirm absolutely my position and destroy your position in two ways:
gsubc is indeed the term used for porportionality and the units normalization in the equation.
your statement: "one lb mass actually weighs 32.2 lbs force" is shown to be utter stupidity and summarily dismissed by the URL material.
Force - Newton's second law of motion states that the force exerted on an object is proportional to the mass of the object times the acceleration produced by the force. In the SI system of units, the proportionality constant is unity if the applied force is expressed in Newtons, the mass is expressed in kilograms, and the acceleration is expressed in meters per second per second. In the American Engineering System of units, this proportionality constant is 1/gc.
100% confirmatory of my position and diametrically opposed to yours.... get it moron.
g - The quantity g is the acceleration of gravity. It has a value of 9.81 m/s2 (32.174 ft/s2) at sea level on Earth. Its value changes slightly as you change elevation on Earth, and would change dramatically if you were to travel to the moon or to a different planet (for example, g has a value of 5.36 ft/s2 on the moon, and 38.6 ft/s2 on Saturn).
gc - The quantity gc is a constant conversion factor. Its value does not change as you change locations, it has the same value on the moon as it does on Earth (however 1 lbm will not weigh 1 lbf on the moon). The quantity gc is best viewed as a conversion factor between two different units for force.
Thats a dagger in you guts you're feeling just now... idiot
Mass - Mass is a simple dimension that describes the quanity of matter in a substance or object. The units for mass are pound-mass, gram, and kilogram in the American Engineering, CGS, and SI systems of units, respectively
Since this idiot will not apologize, admit his ignorance and persists in calling me a liar while demonstating his incredible stupidity and hubris I urge other hopefully more competent posters to get him off the forum as he is a total embarrassment to the already intellectually vacuous arguments advanced in behalf of evolution.
And you wonder why Phillip Johnson, Behe, Myers, and 400 others publically doubt your theory when its backed up by a team who simply has no grasp of basic scientific laws such as Newton's Laws and SLOT.
A formal apology and a lot of groveling would be in order for this clown
