How would you weigh a plane without scales?
« on: April 04, 2012, 09:04:39 PM »

How would you weigh a plane without scales? You may receive this interview question during your job interview.

there are 3 possible answer which you can use.

By length,height,circumference and density.

Measure the pressure in each tire, and the contact patch size of each tire, then it's just arithmetic.

Weight on each tire (in newtons) = pressure in pascals x area in square meters.

Stick it in a tank of water then measure the water displaced.archemedes law

Never had this question, but thanks for that, would have totally stumped me.  Wonder why someone would ask that, i suppose they want to see if you can think of alternatives without using the standard equipment
