How much does a nickle (5 cent piece) weigh?...
    #3611863 - 01/11/05 11:03 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Would someone with a digital scale please tell me how much a nickle weighs, so I can calibrate my scale?

TY

:peace:

with my digis, my nickles are from 4.8-4.9g. close enough to 5 for you to calibrate a hand scale.

Mushrooms are very deceiving in their size.

1cc water = 1ml water = 1g water
10cc water = 10ml water = 10g water
100cc water = 100ml water = 100g water
1000cc water = 1000ml water = 1000g water

Don't use coins... use 20cc syringes, five of them dumped into a selephane cigarette wrapper. (Selephane = 0.0001g, your scale won't notice it!)

cc (Cubic Centimeters) = 3 dimensions (Fixed Unit) X (3) (L X W X H)
ml (Milliliters) = 2 dimensions (Fixed Unit Radius) X (Height) (R X H)
g (Grams) = 1 dimention (Weight) (W)

Shit where I live the solids in the 1ml of water alone would weigh that  :wink:
Intersting method there though .
I love my little wiehgt set that came with my tripple beam , makes such things easy to deal with  :wink:

That isn't coincidence... that is how they came up with weights and measures.

I would imagine that you would TRY and use distilled (Pure) water... I don't think that one or two microscopic particles of lead or calcium will interfere much! (Just don't drink your water!) :smile:

TARE

That is some heavy celophane! What do you smoke? Cigar 1000's...

Besides, 0.2 with 100cc = 100.2g = 0.2% acuracy.
As opposed to the nickle method...

My $30.00 digital scale only shows grams... (I am not selling mg of coke here!)
