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.

1-
By length,height,circumference and density.

2-
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.

3-
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
