This article examines the association between the air density and the apparent mass of the stainless steel weight. According to the article, as the air density is reduced, the apparent mass of the stainless steel weight increased relative to that of the platinum weight. It notes that the quantitative resolution of the paradox is evident in the context of accurate mass comparisons. It also identifies many smaller-order effects that influence the apparent weight.
