Mass of some objects?

Unread postAuthor: Northir » Wed Sep 09, 2009 10:41 pm

looking for some one that is willing to weigh some random objects for use in this app http://thehalls-in-bfe.com/GGDT/ mostly curious about the mass of the following

plastic tack
16p nail
8p nail
AAA battery : Found!> 11.5 Grams
ADD: AAA Lithium Battery : 7.6 Grams
AA battery : Found 23 Grams (0.81 oz)
1" of 1-7/8" duct tape

i know one of you bored people have a balance scale and might be willing to weigh them, trying to build a dart for my air guns, picture below (Top is a 3/8" bore Bottom is a 3/4" bore both are 1"X24" chambers)

YES! A thread like this I think you should convert this into a thread that gives the weight in oz of different projectiles... such as marbles, paintballs, different pellets, copper or steel zinc plated 4.5 bbs, golfballs bouncy balls in diffrerent sizes, etc, etc. (Spudgun ammo)

All in a neat order in a list.... ;) would be pretty cool.

I think JSR had a weight that could do like 0.00001 of a gram or something... very high tech I guess... he might be willing to MEEBEE weigh some things for us? :?:... meebbe just mebbbe

EDIT: if you want I can make the thread... :P

AA Battery: 23 grams
AAA Battery: 11.5 grams
AAA Battery (lithium): 7.6 grams

Edit: Just get some cheap kitchen scales, they will do the job well enough

I have a scale I use for weighing gunpowder for reloading bullets. When I find some batteries and weigh them.
Is this to late to post on this thread?
