How much is a 100 1997 Franklin quarter pound silver proof worth?
This a a 4 troy ounce ingot in a particularly pleasing form. The accurate answer is however much you can find a buyer willing to pay. The value of the material is only part of the total value, and fluctuates from minute to minute - as of the time I am responding to the question (spot at US $27.01), the silver content (124 grams or 4 troy ounces) is worth $108.04. *Note that one fourth of a troy pound is approximately 93.4 grams (3 troy ounces). A troy pound is approximately 373 grams... 12 troy ounces. Silver is always measured and sold by TROY weight. This is actually a third of a pound of silver, for any that care...

One pound of gold vs 1 pound of feathers?
This is a favoured trick question of teachers since time immemorial, the joke is of course that they both weigh a pound, so they both weigh the same. The pounds and ounces that are used to weigh gold are a different size from those used for everyday objects like feathers. Gold, along with other precious metal and gems, is weighed in "Troy" ounces, everything else is weighed in avoirdupois ounces. A troy ounce is bigger than a normal ounce. Troy ounces weigh 31.10 grams, whereas an avoirdupois ounce weighs 28.35 grams. This means an ounce of gold is heavier than an ounce of feathers by 2.75 grams. But, while there are sixteen ounces in an avoirdupois pound, there are only twelve ounces in a troy pound. This means that a pound of feathers weighs 454 grams, and a pound of gold weighs 373 grams. So that the pound of feathers is 81 grams heavier than the pound of gold.

What weighs more a ton of feathers or a ton of gold?
> neither, they both weigh 2,000 pounds > > They both weigh the same. They're both a ton. > The above is not complete. Gold is measured using the Troy system of weights where the ounce is heavier but there's less of them per pound. 1 Avoirdupois ounce = 28.3 grams (Feathers) 1 Troy ounce = 31.1 grams (Gold) There are 12 Troy Ounces is a Troy Pound. There are 16 Avoirdupois Ounces in a Avoirdupois Pound 453 grams in a Avoirdupois pound. 373 grams in a Troy Pound So the Avoirdupois pound is heavier. a troy ton is 2450 troy pounds or 913 kg a Avoirdupois ton has 2 weights, the short ton and the long ton. (note: in the US "short ton" is known as ton and long ton is mostly unused, also known as the imperial ton) a short ton, 907 kg (2000lbs) a long ton is 1016 kg (2240 lbs) So, a short ton of feathers weighs less than a ton of gold, a long ton of feathers weighs more than a ton of gold. Fun times. Unless of course you're referring to the metric ton which is 1000 kg (2205 lbs). In which case they are the same weight.
