What r 10 things in ur house that weigh 8 oz?

• Use your imagination. A good place to look is in the kitchen, where foodstuffs are kept in containers with the weight of their contents marked on them. For instance, a “short” can of soda is 250 ml, which weighs a bit more than 8 ounces. I have a small jar of Dijon mustard in the fridge whose contents weighed 8 ounces before some was used from it. Yogurt often comes in 6 or 8 ounce containers for individual servings. A large, though not huge, russet potato may weigh about 8 ounces, as might a particularly small g ÉľÄ…Ö„Ň˝ fruit or a large apple, pear, orange, or fruit of similar size and shape, as might a middling to large onion.

If you can’t find enough there, look in the bathroom or bedroom for bars of soap, bottles of shampoo or conditioner, face cream, yada yada yada. These are also marked with the weight of their contents.

And then there is your stationery and your bookshelf. A 500-sheet ream of 20-pound basis paper, the stuff that feeds your printer, weighs almost exactly 5 pounds. A 1

50-sheet 8-1/2 x 11 inch or A4 tablet would therefore weigh pretty close to 8 ounces. An octavo-sized paperback software manual with about a hundred pages plus several flyleaves at the end weighed in at slightly over 7 ounces. My 16mo (4-1/4 in x 7 in) paperback copy of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Two Towers, with about 450 pages, weighs slightly in excess of 8 ounces.

Many of those things listed are most likely actually measured in fluid ounces, not ounces weight. Two different things. Weight vs. volume. You can have 8 fl oz of yogurt and it will weight considerably more than 8 fluid ounces of water due to the difference in specific gravity.

Point being, make sure you are looking at items measured for weight and not volume.
