 German term or phrase: weight formula This is a continuation of my weight problem query, but the system won't let me just add a comment; therefore I must post this separately. Here is the entire passage, with formula, which I hope is understandable as reproduced here. Bei einer Wägung in einem Fluid (Flüssigkeit oder Gas) der Dichte Q fl ist der Wägewert W durch folgende Beziehung festgelegt: 1 - Qfl ___ Q W = m ------- 1 - Qfl ___ QG Dabei ist Q die Dichte des Wägegutes und Q G die Dichte der Gewichtstücke. Anmerkung: Der Wägewert eines Wägegutes (einer Ware) ist gleich der Masse der Gewichtstücke, die die Waage im Gleichgewicht halten bzw. die gleiche Anzeige an der Waage wie das Wägegut liefern. Thanks in advance for any help on the different weight terms here.
