That was what i said ,and her reply was "but if i dropped your bathroom scales in the water their is nothing for the water to push upon " In other words the water cant get underneath the standing surface to push it up. Ok scales have holes but what if it were sealed.Dont you just hate it when they sit there think for a minute and complicate things.
So this begs the question- do changes in air pressure affect your weight as measured by the scale? I would think not- maybe this has something to do with air/water pressure acting in all directions while your finite (some are more finite than others) body only exerts downward pressure? Surely a passing physics pro has an answer with a better explanation? Do you weigh less when the moon and/or sun is directly overhead?
