10 Everyday Items That Weigh A Quarter Gram or Less

The gram is one of the most commonly used units of measurement, but very few products weigh exactly half a gram “g” stands for gram

Grams don’t weigh much, so if you have a small amount, measure in grams

After doing some research I came up with a list of things that weigh half a gram

Pumpkin seeds Sunflower seeds Wheat peas Corn Fleas (insects) Houseflies (insects) Silica gel packets 25 carat diamonds Watch parts

pumpkin seeds

One ounce of pumpkin seeds contains approximately 84 seeds weighing 28 grams

By simple calculation, one pumpkin seed weighs approximately 04 grams

Season the pumpkin seeds with olive oil, salt, and garlic powder and toast over medium heat (350°F) for 12 to 15 minutes

sunflower seeds

A cup of 266 sunflower seeds weighs 133 grams

Calculate the weight of a sunflower seed and you will find that it is approximately 05 g

According to Healthlinecom, sunflower seeds are a healthy and nutritious food

Sunflower seeds contain good ingredients such as vitamin E, protein, magnesium, and linoleic acid, which help lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar

With an average seed weight of 35 mg of the variety, 28,571 seeds were sown per kg of seed

A variety with an average seed weight of 45 mg would contain only 22,222 seeds per kg of seed sown

On average, peas weigh between 01 and 036 grams

Peas weigh 1819 g per 100 seeds and have a diameter of 7585 mm

25 carat diamond

I don’t think I need to explain what a diamond is anymore

One of the facts is “expensive” Diamonds between 300 and 399 carats (carats) quoted by Diamondseinfo go for $16,158/carat

1 carat is equal to 02 grams, so if you have a 25 carat diamond, it is very light and very expensive at only 05 grams
