Muscle weigh more than fat?
I've always heard that muscle does weigh more than fat, but recently read somewhere that its not correct and it actually weighes the same as fat, anyone know what is correct? Thanksx
No its a complete myth its physics....muscle is dense th molcules are compacted closer together as well as fat is far less dense...take a 10 pounds of rocks and 10 lbs of feathers rocks n one bucket and feathers n anther...the 10lbs of rocks seems heavier thn th 10 pounds of feathers ...but does the rocks weigh more thn th feathers??? No 10lbs is still 10lbs they weigh exactly the same...rocks may seem heavier thn th feathers as well as muscle may seem heavier thn fat but a pound is still a pound...
You guys are measuring both in lbs. Of course 1lb of anything will weigh the same as 1lb of anything else. It's 1lb. But if you take a measurement, such as 1 cup of fat and 1 cup of muscle, which would weigh more?
Thanks yeah that helps, I've been working out a lot lately and the scales have hardly moved, and I've had a lot of people say, oh you've probably built muscle, I'm hoping they are right but then I think are they just saying that to make me feel better?
Which weighs more, a ton of feathers or a ton of bricks?
1 lb of muscle is the same weight as 1 lb of fat lol. The only difference is the SIZE. 1 lb of fat has a much larger mass than 1 lb of muscle. So when people say muscle weighs less than fat it sounds a bit nonsensical ha
Does a 1/2 a pound equal 1 pound is 5oz eqaul to 12oz does 1+2=4??? A feather has different chemical structure ...thn a rock 1 feather and 1 rock will not weigh th same but they will also not b th same measurement...so whn they r weighed individually they will not weigh th same but to make and equal measurement u must add more feathers ths is volume ..on a body we measure by scales if I'm replacing 10 pounds of muscle with 10 pounds of fat they are equal it just takes more fat or volume to equal muscle or mass... 10 pounds is 10 pounds is 10 pounds.
To me it is simple and very very very very basic seeing it was 9th grade science over 18 years ago and is probably 6th Grade science today...if its to complicated to u thts ur problem...and since ur more interseted n arguing and before ur emotions explode and start calling me stupid or ths or tht or accuse me of saying ur ths or doing tht...Ill just end ths conversation and tell u hav a good day sir.
