### How do you calculate 1 lb gross weight from net weight?

You cannot do so directly without weighing the object and
knowing the amount of product in the packaging.
Gross weight refers to the amount of product plus the weight of
the packaging. Net weight is the product without the packaging.
Therefore the gross weight would depend on the type (and weight) of
packaging plus the wight of the product contained.

### How can you estimate how many pennies are in a large coffee can without counting them all?

Assuming all of the pennies are U.S. pennies minted after 1982,
each one has a mass of 2.5 g.
Weigh the can of pennies. That weight is the gross weight.
Temporarily transfer the pennies to another container and weigh
the empty can.
Subtract the weight of the empty can from the gross weight. The
difference is the net weight.
If the net weight is in pounds, multiply it by 16 oz/lb.
Multiply the net weight in ounces by 28.34952 g/oz.
Divide the product by 2.5 g/penny.

### How much does a small propane cylinder weigh empty?

There is a fair amount of variation, but the standard small
16.4oz (1 lb) propane cylinder usually weighs just about a pound
when empty (Tare weight, or the weight of the container itself). It
is then usually charged with 16oz (by weight) of liquid propane for
a total of around 32iz (2 lb).
In Summary
Tare Weight: 16oz (weight of the container/bottle)
Net Weight: 16oz (weight of the liquid propane fuel)
Gross Weight 32oz (weight of a full bottle)
or in more practical terms, the closer your bottle is to weighing 1
lb, the closer you are to empty.

###### Asked in Space Shuttle, Weight and Mass

### What is the weight of a space shuttle?

Shuttle Gross liftoff weight: 240,000 lb (109,000
kg) Empty weight: 172,000 lb (78,000 kg) Maximum payload: 55,250 lb
(25,060 kg) The weight of the main external tank and fuel, and the
solid-fueled boosters are not included. * The current orange
"super-lightweight tanks" are 58,500 lb (26,560 kg) empty, and have
a fueled liftoff weight of 1,680,000 lb (762,100 kg) * Each SRB
weighs approximately 1,300,000 pounds (590,000 kg) at launch This
yields an approximate total vehicle weight of 4.5 million lb (2
million kg). A widely quoted NASA figure is 4,474,574 lb (2,029,203
kg).
