They weigh the same as long as you are measuring both in either the avoirdupois or troy system.

Both have the same mass -even if they have different volumes and are made of different materials- would always have the same weight.

A pound of BS weighs more because of the smell.

Gold is measured in Troy Ounces. 31 grams in a Troy ounce. 28 grams in a regular ounce. By that measure, and ounce of gold weighs MORE than an ounce of lead. MAGA

Re: What weighs more a pound of feathers or a pound of lead?
The feathers weigh more. The pound of feathers were weighed in air. Because they are less dense, they are somewhat buoyed by the air in which they were measured out. Not so the lead. The lead occupies very little volume.

Thus, when weighed in a vacumn the feathers will weigh more because they are no longer buoyed by the air.

Isn't the weight of the air offset by the buoyancy of the air in the weighing atmosphere?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77134005

No, they are not... it's just common sense to me...

Mass and weight are often used interchangeably but they are NOT interchangeable. where F is the force required to accelerate a Mass M at a rate a. Weight is a positive quantity which varies with gravity.

Are we talking eagle, duck or hummingbird sized feathers here?

What OP us really asking is, "Which would rather get hit by as fired out of a cannon or dropped from 10 stories".
