actually, it'd be like a 2.25 cuz you know the dealer shaves off(like he'll sell you .9 instead of 1.0 g for a 20). Reason is that if you divvy up an ounce into .9s instead of 1.0, you can get 30 bags even. Don't ask how I know...just chalk it up to a mathematical head.

The metric system is all well in good, but when you get out in the real world in the US, in industry, all they use is english. Learn it, live it, love it.

Nickel is the one you want.

If your in physics, then I bet they have some nice digies or a triplebeam lying around.

it'd funny if your project worked out with 5.05 grams at home, but not 5.00 grams when the teacher tests it.
