Hold on for a sec. How is Mass, resistance to acceleration?
C'mon give me a challenge. You must know things I don't.
Damn.....yeah I did, I meant mass, my bad.
Matter is not anything that takes up space, it is anything that consists of atoms that have a positive proton and negative electron. Because there are dark matter and anti-matter.
Regardless, the next time you see your science teacher, ask him to define mass. Then if he didn't answer mass is the resistance to acceleration, then him it is not completely true. It will be entertaining ( I did something similar to a teacher once, about Quantum Mechanics, it is hilarious ). Hopefully he would praise you instead of getting angry.
Here is another challenge ( I just made it up on the spot ). Define matter, anti-matter and dark matter.
You asked me the definition of Matter, not Mass....
Another acceptable definition for mass in everyday applications ( not relativistic, just like Newtonian physics ) is mass is the amount of "stuff" something is made of. By the definition you gave, mass is measure by the amount of space it takes, with is not true, which means that the greater the mass = greater the space, that is volume not mass. Scientifically your definition is false. There is two definitions used, the first one is more accurate. if you teacher taught you the definition you gave, then tell him/her what I said ( be sure to say you came up with it, trust me, it will be funny ), and if you would be so kind to PM his/her response. Don't worry, I gave the answer that is not applicable in relativistic situations when my dad asked me, and I facepalmed when he told me the right answer.
Okay, mass is the resistance to acceleration.
Think about it for a while. Well, it is mainly due to Relativity that this definition came to be. ( If you don't know relativity, tell me, and I will explain it as best as possible, there is no disgrace in admitting ignorance, I am ignorant about a lot of things )
I don't get it.
Umm...no, that is not completely true. Try again, here is a hint you are thinking in 3-dimensions.
I am posting right now on Scifleet.
Matter is anything that takes up space.
PS, we're waiting for you on SciFleet.
100!+1, 100!+2, 100!+3 100!+4.........100!+99
That is how to do it :D
Here is another question my dad asked me,
The definition of matter.
It is more tricky then it looks, do you want to give it a shot?
