Question 1

You find your mass to be 42 kg on a weighing machine. Is your mass more or less than 42 kg?


The weighing machine reads slightly less than the actual value. This is because of the upthrust of air acting on our body. Hence, the body gets pushed slightly upwards, causing the weighing machine to show a reading less than the actual value.
