Feathers Heavier Than Lead

At one end of a fine balance, hang a piece of lead, and at the other

as many feathers as will poise it; then place the balance in the

receiver. As the air is exhausted, the feathers will appear to

overweigh the lead, and when all the air is drawn off, the feathers

will preponderate, and the lead ascend.
