What Weighs 500 Grams?

Answer

To calibrate a scale, weights of 100 or 500 grams are often needed. To avoid buying weights for the calibration, common household items can be used. A nickel weighs five grams, so to make 100 grams,20 nickels can be used. To make 500 grams, 100 nickels can be used. Make sure the nickels are clean so that the calibration weight is not affected.
