Redrang604 Posted December 23, 2004 Share Posted December 23, 2004 ok, in fact gold weighs less pound for pound and heres why, gold is not weighed on the same system as feathers, gold is weighed on the troy scale and there are 12 ounces to a pound in the troy scale. Feathers, and just about everything else is weghed on the avdupois(sp?) system in which there are 16 ounces, the ounces in each are the same, but the pounds are not.Thus pound for pound, feathers weigh more than gold Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
