                Mass can be perceived in different ways: statically, through gravitational cues; dynamically, through inertial
             cues; or a combination of both. This article investigates the relationship between these modes of perception. In
             three different experiments, subjects matched masses that were held statically in the hand to masses that were
             either accelerated or decelerated. Accelerated masses were perceiv
