    Weight

    Post  George on Mon 04 Dec 2017, 22:02

    I currently weigh approximately 721 N.


    Weight is a force and therefore should be measured in newtons, not kilos! It also varies from place to place on Earth – so strictly speaking I should say that my current weight is approximately 721 N in London, where the acceleration due to gravity, I believe, is 9.81183 m s−2.

    At the moment, it is about 275 K in Ilford, Greater London.

    Nothing wrong with measuring temperatures in kelvins, I hope? Razz

    It is probably even snowing heavily in other parts of the UK – or will be before the end of the weekend. In such treacherous conditions, it is of paramount importance for motorists to drive carefully – with speeds not exceeding 9 m s−1 in built-up areas.


    There is definitely nothing wrong with measuring speeds in metres per second.

    In the Premier League match between Arsenal and Liverpool on Friday, with twenty minutes to go, Roberto Firmino’s shot appeared to be saved by Petr Čech – only for the ball to be deflected through radians before bouncing into the net.



    There is nothing wrong with measuring angles in radians.

    I have put on a small amount of weight; I am now weighing just a tad under 740 N in Walthamstow, London.
