Get your facepalming hand ready, because you’re about to encounter some incredibly stupid people…
Theoretically yes, a computer’s weight would increase as more date gets added to the HDD. Going from 0 charge to the several electrons a 1 would be on a drive sector, would increase its weight, but the amount is negligible (and pretty much immeasurable). Like a coiled spring weighs more than the same spring without tension.
^ Thank you! Not a facepalm-worthy question
^Oh man…..really? (double face palm) Computers don’t store electrons as they retain information, for example a hard drive re orients magnetic domains giving them a N or S pole facing the reader head, thus giving you the required binary condition. The electron storage only happens in capacitive memory devices like Random Access Memory, however most computers these days do not store most of their information for long periods this way.
Sleeping during science class? Regardless of your discussion on electrons, atomic mass comes from the nucleus, electrons have no mass.
Actually, electrons DO have mass.
