Best Answer

Current US pennies (cents, actually) weigh 2.5 gm each. An American ounce is 28.35 gm so the calculation is (2 * 28.35) / 2.5 = 22.68. So, you'd need 23 whole pennies to weigh at least 2 ounces.

It would take nearly five dollars worth of pennies ($4.976).

The current US cents weigh 2.5 grams but are only 2.5% copper (plated zinc).
This means there is only 1/16 gram of copper in each cent, so it would take 16 to yield a gram of copper and 497.6 pennies to yield a troy ounce of copper.

(31.1 grams per troy ounce, compared to 28.35 grams for an avoirdupois ounce)

What does 2 tablespoons weigh in ounces?

That's impossible to say unless you tell us what is in the tablespoons. A tablespoon of water will weigh a different amount than a tablespoon of flour. Perhaps you meant to ask how many fluid ounces two tablespoons contain? There are two different ounces: ounces of weight and ounces of volume. A tablespoon is a measure of volume, not of weight. An ounce of volume is called a "fluid ounce." A tablespoon contains 0.5 fluid ounces. (It does NOT weigh 0.5 ounces.) So two tablespoons would contain 1 fluid ounce.
