Did you ever figure what might happen to the weight of Usb Drives when you top it off with data? Will the weight of USB increase?
I am genuinely not being ironical, the weight of Usb Drives really reduces when you include information.
You kidding me bruh? — No
Here is how it works :
- USB Drives uses flash memory and binary digits 1’s and 0’s are stored on transistors.
- In order to replicate 0 in the USB Drive, the floating gate of the transistor should be charged and in order to obtain 1 in the USB Drive, transistor should be discharged.
- To charge it, we add electrons, and the mass of each electron is 0.00000000000000000000000000091 grams.
- This means that an empty USB drive (which mostly holds zeros) weighs more than a full USB drive (which has ones and zeros).
Note: However, you would need to weigh more Usb drives than exist on the planet together at once before the difference in weight became easily measurable.
