And really, how hard can it be to get 20 nickles? Take a dollar bill to the store and ask them, they'd give you them, and that should work fine.

as far as why it has to be 100 g : most likely the scales internal programming has 100 as a preset amount and logically it would be a high enough number to establish accuracy or should we say X10 more accurate then using 10g

if you cant find 20 nickles, try 100 dollar bills
hahaha hmmm... im pretty sure a mL of water wieghs a gram... not sure if you can just pour 100 mL of water onto the scale though... haha sorry im not much help.
he's right about the water thing... but it has to be distilled water, cant be tap water. tap water has added mineral and chemicals that will throw off the density.
20 nickles would be most accurate though... just gotta find 20, lol.

i'm trying to recalibrate my digital scale and i need a 100 gram weight. it didn't come with one, so i'm trying to find something around the house. i know nickels weigh 5 grams, but finding 20 of those is hard work. anyone know how much quarters weigh?
I've calibrated my scale with calibration weights. After that I tried to weigh 20 nickels and they weren't all the same weight so I don't think you should do the nickel way
