The Weight of Mass Or the Mess of Weight

The Weight of Mass Or the Mess of Weight

The ambiguity of the term weight, meaning either the force of gravity or mass, is analyzed.

The ambiguity of the term weight, meaning either the force of gravity or mass, is analyzed. It is shown that through the historical development of technical understanding the distinction between mass and force of gravity has been obscure. The confusion is further aggravated by the use of units with the same name for either mass or force. Contemporary technology is vulnerable to errors and misunderstandings due to the ambiguity of the term weight. SI uses clearly distinguishing unit names for mass and force, that is, kilogram and newton. It is recommended that the term weight be avoided and if used be restricted to mean force of gravity.

Designed to serve as a textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Mechanical Engineering, this book helps promote student understanding of complex phenomena of vibration technology. The book through clear and concise writing equips students with skills required to use vibration theory in analysis and design of engineering systems and devices. The book also discusses in an exclusive chapter the detrimental effects of industrial noise on human beings, and suggests measures to control noise. The book explains the basic principles and the fundamental concepts of the vibration theory related to the study of conventional vibration phenomena such as free response, response to harmonic excitation, general forced response, non-linear analysis, self-excited oscillations, random time functions, and torsional vibration. Besides, it discusses the vibration measuring instruments used for testing in various engineering applications. The book features a wealth of excellent worked-out examples of practical applications, and a host of challenging problems at the end of each chapter.
