How much does a ounce of gold weigh?
they both weigh an ounce so they weigh the same This is not the correct answer...DuFuss. Gold is weighed in troy weight, one troy ounce = 480 grains= 31.2 grams. Brick would be measured in avoirdupois weight, where 1 ounce=437.5 grains or 28.4 grams. Therefore, an ounce of gold weighs more than a ounce of brick, feathers, lead, etc.
