Measuring carbon

Postby Lance » Monday May 11, 2009 6:35 pm

I weird question, but i need to find out how much 5g of cabon is without using scales. Digital scales are anywhere from $100.00 upwards. I was hoping if someone knew what sort of measurement was equal to 5g of granual carbon. (EG. 1 teaspoon, 1 tablespoon ect) Could someone please help.

Thanks Lance
I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

I use a digital scale bought from BigW for under $30.
Measures up to 2kg, in 1 gr increments.

Sorry, but I have no idea what 5 gr of carbon would be.
