# Thread: A new definition of mass

1. I have defined mass as shape. Thus the formula for the mass of a plane geometric figure is 4Pi Area / perimeter squared.

What are the implications for physics?

There are many implications. But the notable one is that mass as an inertia and opposition to change of speed is too simple.

We fail to see that the opposition of a mass to change in speed is not the same if the mass is at high speed as when it is at low speed.

So if you were in a room in a spaceship between galaxies and you moved at 30 million kilometers a second, and acclerated to 40 million kilometres a second, that gravity induced would not be the same as if you were at 50 million km a second and accelerated to 60 million kilometres a second.

Why would the gravity not be the same? Why do you suppose it would be the same?

If I have a wife and I am thirty and she is twenty we are ten years apart, but as we grow older our age difference means less and less -- doesn't it?  2.

I am not agreeing with your math. How would that show the volume of the object? Or what it is made of.
