How does an hourglass's weight change while sand is dripping in it? (better be in a diagram)
W=mg that is what weight is. I think that when the sands are falling it is a kind of free fall; so some of the hourglasses's weight should diminish.Start by saying what you think "weight" is and why it should be changing.

There is nothing about falling, free or otherwise, or not falling at all, in the definition above. Why should the weight change then?
Can you demonstrate it in a diagram?or give a link of it?The truth is that experiment measures the tilt of the scales (which they call "weight reading"), and nothing else.
They explain why that "reading" is different from the static case. The details are complicated, and depend not only on the motion of the sand, but on the motion of the pans, too.
