    Volume;It's three dimensional quantity usually enclosed by visible boundaries or otherwise imaginary.

    Volume is the physical size/dimensions of an object. The space that it fills. The mass of an object is is an actual measure of the quantity of matter. For instance a gas has a lot of empty space, and one could consider it's volume as being the smallest region in which all the gas of interest is contained. No matter what you do you will still have empty space in that region in addition to the individual molecules/atoms Whereas the mass of the gas is direct measure of the quantity of matter present in that region (i.e. assuming a pure gas consisting only of molecules of a single type the "mass of the gas" would be the number of molecules (N) in the region times the mass of the individual molecule).

    Also mass increases with the speed. The mass however does not change depending on the gravitational force. However mass and weight are arbitrary terms in conversational English such that people misuse them;(

    This is a paradox as mass is measured using spring scale which inevitably involves force due to gravity towards the center of earth..... This renders assigning mass to any given object using such means virtually all inaccurate.

    Ahh good point robert but volume also changes with speed too. As one increases in speed, the length of an object (in the direction of its motion also contracts (to an outside observer)

    Motion is relative so yeah no such thing as movement exists without an observer.

    For instance if I am travelling in a cube at 0.9c in the x direction then to an outside observer that dimension will appear contracted by a factor \[\sqrt{1-(\frac{ v }{ c })^{2}} = \sqrt{1-(0.9)^{2}} = 0.435\] So if my cube is of dimension 1m x 1m x 1m, then then to an outside observer it will appear as 1m x 1m x 0.435m; and thus my volume has decreased.

    If you want a true mind teaser consider a spinning disk that (dont worry about the accelerations :) ) is spinning at 0.9c

    Any point on the circumference of the disk is parallel to the motion and thus should contract; however the radius of the disk is perpendicular to the motion and should stay the same..... so what should happen?

    By assuming that disk is spinning at 0.9C moving at 0.9C it would virtually at one point exceed the speed of light....if such disk exists.....

    Ty peaches but I would argue I am just interested in these things and my curiosity drives me to not just think about these things because i need to pass a class or get some grade.... but because I am actually fascinated by it.... so what I know came with work not some in born ability.... remember that

    People would advance in their knowledge of science if our contemporary education abandoned its approach... remember that they exist to deintellectualize rather than anything else and usually kills the conceptual reasoning by over-exposure to root memorization which encourages manifestation of Obsessive Compulsive behavior(for root memorization does not involve reason but rather act of impulse induced by authority over its necessity)

    Good point Robert no such disk exists for that very reason.... since the centripetal force m v^2 / r would become enormous very near the axel if a point on the edge of the disk were moving at that speed... but really the accelerations to get the disk to that point would be even the bigger issue (which is why I slyly swept them under the rug as I was giving that example ;) )

    Yea totally agree... funny that I am actually pretty bad a rote memorization and have issues all the time with some things (even quite basic).... fortunately I have a number of tools under my belt now that I can employ to get me to where I need to be if I cant quite remember the exact relations

    I don't think we can build a disk that can withstand such centripetal acceleration...they would disintegrate with heat too...they would then in be plasma state and beyond nearing non gravity state probably

    Oh yes I think I suffer from mild memory issue but I can automatically memorize things that are part of my logical reasoning.... like I don't have problem with memorizing terminology in physics if that theory I am learning is founded on it

    If we know what constitutes a matter from atomic level, then we should be able to know what chemical interaction makes a specific piece of memory and somehow implant them..

    For sure, but I think you're missing my point on the disk. It is meant to serve as nothing more than a thought experiment. Its funny how a paradox arises if we neglect the material considerations. Of course no such paradox exists as the bonds that hold together material exist as a result of the electromagnetic force. A force which propagate at the speed of light. Such a situation could never exist quite literally because charges could not interact "in time" to avoid their flying apart.

    Well that would be quite amazing if we were able to pull off something like that; however I think the teamwork that comes as an inevitability makes up for our own individual shortcomings.

    Maybe we might be able to know the chemical/biological composites to manifest a consciousness. At that consciousness we apply all of our precedent knowledge to cut the work required to reach the state of "standing on the shoulders of giants" if you will

    Perhaps but in such a world the unique insight and creativity necessary for breakthroughs would be rendered irrelevant. It would be a lot quicker... but it would take all of the fun and mistique away... such a world seems quite dull to me.

    Perhaps, but who is to say we wouldn't accomplish that on our own. Besides if you consider how computers solve problems, even if we were able to create a consciousness it wouldn't automatically know how to solve problems. It has to learn, just like we have to learn. So in short it is no panacea if/when it happens, merely the next step in perhaps a near infinite progression as we asymptotically approach what is actually knowable. But that is just my opinion.
