How Do I Weigh Gold Without Professional Equipment

When we need to measure the weight of gold, the usual preference is to use a professional electronic scale or balance. However, in some cases, we may not have these professional equipments at hand. Don't worry, the following will introduce several methods to help you roughly estimate the weight of gold without professional equipment.

Use DAILY Objects As Reference

In the absence of professional equipment, we can use some known weight of daily objects as a reference. For example, a standard A4 piece of paper is about 5 grams, and an ordinary one-dollar coin (in some national currencies, for example) is about 6 grams. You can get a rough estimate by comparing the weight of gold with these items. Of course, this method is not very accurate, but it is sufficient for general estimation.

The Use of Water Buoyancy Principle

The use of water buoyancy principle to estimate the weight of gold is a relatively accurate method. First, you need a large enough container and enough water. Fill the container with water, and then the gold completely immersed in water, record the height of the water level rise. Next, using an object of known volume and density (such as a small rock or a coin of known weight), repeat the above steps and record the height of the water level rise. By comparing the height of the water level rise between the two times, you can calculate the volume of the gold and then use the density of the gold (about 19.3 g/cm3) to estimate its weight.

Use Mobile Phone Applications To Make An Estimate

There are now mobile phone apps that can estimate the weight of an object using the built-in sensors in your phone. Although the accuracy of these apps may vary depending on the model of the phone and the precision of the sensor, they provide a convenient and quick method of estimation. You can search for "object weighing" or similar keywords in the app shop to find the right app for you and try it out.

Seek Professional Help

If you're not satisfied with any of the above methods, or you need more accurate measurements, then the best option may be to Choose Naikesi gold jewellery weight machine.

Whichever method you choose, you need to be careful to remain patient and attentive. While these methods may not provide accuracy comparable to professional equipment, they can still help you get a rough estimate of the weight of your gold without professional equipment.
