A whole number value (positive or negative) that is assigned to every category or container. Categories and containers are often sorted according to weight, with those of the lightest weight 'floating' to the top, and those of the heaviest weight 'sinking' to the bottom. Where categories or containers have an equal weight, their order is determined alphabetically by their title.
A letter's relative amount of blackness. Proper terminology for weight has never been precisely determined. In types used for continuous reading, two weights are generally used - the original design, called either regular or light, and a boldface. Square serif and sans serif types have as many as eight or nine different weights, differently described by each manufacturer. Most likely this imprecision can never be corrected.

The a-weight of a string, for a a letter, is the number of times that letter occurs in the string. More precisely, let A be a finite set (called the alphabet), a\in A a letter of A, and c\in A^* a string (where A^* is the free monoid generated by the elements of A, equivalently the set of strings, including the empty string, whose letters are from A). Then the a-weight of c, denoted by \mathrm{wt}_a(c), is the number of times the generator a occurs in the unique expression for c as a product (concatenation) of letters in A.

Many karting classes mandate a minimum weight for kart and driver (combined), so you might have to add some extra weight to your kart. Oftentimes lead weights are used, similar to the ones used by divers. But people tend to be innovative here. It is very important where you place these weights in order to get a good weight distribution, which will dramatically affect your handling. Also, the weight should be securely mounted to the frame. Don't forget that you yourself are also a weight. See seat, handling.

A weight seems to be the ideal loading element. A weight is ideal as long as the gas system being controlled is relatively stable. This design suffers from instability when controlling a fast, transient flow. This is due to the tendency of the weight to continue in motion (inertia). This creates a pressure overshoot. Also, the mounting orientation is limited to one position where the weight can act correctly. The weight has to be positioned directly above the diaphragm. existence and severity of recorded defects.
