For s&g/the sake of knowing: If the universe, for some crazy reason, was completely devoid of gravity, would we able to find the mass of anything? I'm aware that we can measure the mass of objects in a massless environment by using a spring and looking at T=2(pi)(sqrt(m/k)), but that's based on the fact that we know the spring constant, as far as i'm aware, from experiments utilizing gravity on earth.

(i.e. So what would happen if we didn't know the spring constant beforehand, and we couldn't, at least through gravity.)

inertia, things have mass independent of a local gravity field.

? Could you explain some more? :/
