Expert Solution
To determine

The technician with correct approach while discussing mass and weight.

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Technician A says that mass is the measurement of an object’s inertia. Technician B says that mass and weight may be measured in cubic inches.

Inertia may be defined as the tendency of an object to remain in the same state. For example, if a body is at rest it tends to be in rest until and unless an external force is applied on the body whereas, a body in motion tends to be in the state of motion until and unless it is being disturbed by any external force.

The term mass is in similar meaning to inertia as the tendency of an object varies with its mass...
