how much does a 1/4 gram and a 1/2 gram weigh?

I can’t tell if that was supposed to be a joke or not, magnus1. If it was, it was brilliant. If it wasn’t, it’s really, really depressing.

You people make me cry sometimes.

How much does 1/4 gram and 1/2 gram of WHAT weigh? 1/2 a gram of neutronium is going to weigh a hell of a lot more than 1/2 a gram of hydrogen atoms. You can’t measure weight if the only factor you have to go by is a measure of mass. Grams measure mass, not weight.

actually, this question is easy:

weight = force (gravity) x mass (kg)

force via gravity = 10 m/s2

mass = 1/4 gram = 0.25 grams = 0.00025 kg

weight = 10 x 0.00025 = 0.0025 kilograms or 2.5 grams.

So, there you have it. something with 1/4 gram of mass weighs 2.5 grams on earth.

this isn’t a very specific question, but if you mean if you add them together, then they weigh 3/4 gram

well half of a half is would be 1/4 and half of that would be 1/8th…so it would weigh 1/8th of a gram

1/4 of a gram and 1/2 of a gram
