8 Things That Weigh Around 60 Grams (g)


You see them all the time, you use them all the time but you don’t know this little bit of information about them. Some are everyday objects, others are things you would never have thought of.

How many things do you know that weigh 60grams or its equivalent? Matter of fact, how much does a paper weigh? Learn the previously unknown weights of some commonplace objects. 

Below are some items that weigh 60grams:

1. A small kiwi fruit

It doesn’t get more common than the kiwi fruit. The kiwi fruit is highly nutritious and health beneficial because of its high vitamin C content.

The kiwi fruit also provides several health advantages such as lowering your blood pressure among other things. The average kiwi fruit weighs from 64 grams to around 74 grams. But a small one is surely around the 60 grams measurement.

2. 2 ounces of orange juice

How did we find this out? It all happened on a glorious day and began with an argument between two children on who drank the most juice.

Naturally, the adult had to wade in and measure the ounces, so 1 ounce of orange juice is approximately 30 grams, double that and you will have 60 grams of sweetness going down your throat.

3. The uterus

The uterus or womb as is commonly called is the organ that is responsible for the development of the embryo and fetus during pregnancy.

It is the main organ of a woman’s reproductive system and provides a home for the baby during pregnancy. The uterus ideally weighs about 60 grams, that is 2 ounces or 0.13 pounds.

Though this measurement is subject to several conditions that might affect the weight and size of the uterus. During pregnancy, for instance, the uterus can enlarge to 500 times its original size to accommodate the child. The size can also be affected by fibroid tumors.

4. A tennis ball

The tennis ball is also one of those things you see and don’t think too much about them. Well here’s one interesting tidbit about tennis balls, they generally weigh from 56g to 60 grams (approximately).

The International Tennis Federation (ITF) defines the official diameter as 6.54–6.86 cm (2.57–2.70 inches). Balls must have masses in the range of 56.0–59.4 g (1.98–2.10 ounces).

5. A C size battery

The average c sized battery weighs within the 60 gram to 65 grams bracket. The size of the battery varies according to make or design, but keep in mind that your average inconspicuous battery weighs 60 grams.

You never know when that particular information might come in handy.

6. 60 US bills

A single US dollar bill weighs just 1 gram. But the weight increases according to the increase in your wealth. We want you to keep in mind that whenever you hold a dollar bill, you are holding a 1 gram object.

And whenever you are holding 60 dollar bills, that is 60 grams in your hand or pocket. That seems a little paltry considering 60 dollar bills of any amount is a considerable amount of money. 

7. Two light bulbs

You know what it is, don’t you? That very useful object that serves as a conduit for lighting up your place, yes that is it. The average light bulb is estimated to weigh as much as 34 grams.

The weight ideally varies according to each light bulb brand, but when an A19 sized, 60 watts, incandescent bulb is weighed we get something from 30 grams to 34 grams. It then gives that two of these light bulbs will make a 60 grams object. 

8. Two Erasers

A two-inch rubber bar eraser weighs about 30 grams, while a pencil eraser, the one that fits at the other end of the object, weighs about 20 grams.

Who would have thought that the common eraser would weigh as much as 30 grams or that a pencil eraser weighs 20 grams? Now, two, 2- inches rubber bar erasers therefore would be sufficient for the 60-gram target. While three pencil erasers will be needed to reach the 60 grams target. 

Finally, this ends the list of things that weigh 60 grams. The information contained here is not commonly known, it might seem quite useless or ordinary right now but you never know when it might be helpful in the future. This is not a conclusive list, let us know what you think in the comment section.

The weight of stuff has been an interest of mine ever since I was a child. What I believe is most fascinating about weight is how extremely heavy some objects are both on earth and in the universe.
