Do SSDs get heavier as more data is stored on them? - Page 4

post #31 of 46
I hope the OP means, can you feel the weight lol. Like if you put an SSD on a scale, it'll be heavier. If so, we're all arguing over stupid things rolleyes.gif BUT, doubt it lol

the dust on your ssd would weigh more, so it gets heavier as you use it

1 proton is 1 AMU. 1 electron is 1/1837th of an AMU. The electron is slightly larger, so we'll say an electron has 1/2000 the density of a proton.

The density of a proton is around 3 x 10^15 g/cm^3. Dividing that by 2000 gives us 1,500,000,000,000 g/cm^3. The moon has a density of 3.3 g/cm^3. The electron is a few billion times more dense. Not even close.

Edit: had my moon density wrong. Fixed now.

what i said about the moon wasnt relevant it was just for most people to understand the sheer scale not actual size.

i dont think anyone can understand how big the universe is, nasa said it might be expanding 74 km/s but its something we might never fully know.

and you do know that electrons have no fixed size?

The info on your SSD is stored as binary, which physically exists because electrons charge floating gate transistors. Electrons do have mass and the weight they add (while small) is 100% real. smile.gif

I'm still trying to wrap my head around this but I think my major question is:

When you add a charge to a float-gate transistor are you actaully adding electrons or are you just changing the state (ground vs excited) of the electrons already present in the transistor?
