## How do you guess the weight of a fish?

To estimate the weight of your fish, simply take a length and girth measurement (in inches), and use the following formulas. Remember, these are only estimates! Example: A 30-inch striped bass weighs approximately 12 pounds (30″ x 30″ x 30″)/2,200 = 12.3 pounds.

## How can I weigh something without a scale?

Carefully put a pencil or other small, fairly thin item under the board to make a see-saw. The see-saw will tilt one way. Move the pencil from one end to the other until the see-saw tilts the other way. Measure with a ruler (the “^” is the pencil; the vertical bars are just to show the distances to measure ).

## How do you measure the size of a fish?

To get an estimate of the fish’s weight, input the measurements you got for length and girth into the formula: (girth x girth) x length / 800 = weight. For example, if the fish is 24 inches (61 cm) long and it has a girth of 10 inches (25 cm), the formula would look like: (10 x 10) x 24 / 800 = 3.

## What do the fish eat?

In the wild they feast on live fish, insects, larvae and crustaceans. All fish require some amount of protein; however a carnivore’s diet should be made up of 45% to 70% protein. In addition to proteins, these fish also need some fats to insulate the body, and small amounts of carbohydrates to provide energy.

## How can I calculate weight?

Weight is a measure of the force of gravity pulling down on an object. It depends on the object’s mass and the acceleration due to gravity, which is 9.8 m/s^{2} on Earth. The formula for calculating weight is F = m × 9.8 m/s^{2}, where F is the object’s weight in Newtons (N) and m is the object’s mass in kilograms.

## What weighs 1 gram exactly?

A gram is about:

- a quarter of a teaspoon of sugar.
- a cubic centimeter of water.
- a paperclip.
- a pen cap.
- a thumbtack.
- a pinch of salt.
- a piece of gum.
- the weight of any US bill.

## How do I turn my phone into a scale?

First, download the “Working Scale ” app onto your Android device. Then fold a post-it so that the sticky sides are on the outside, and place it on the top of the cellphone or tablet. This will prevent objects you want to weigh from slipping off. Then place your device on the slightly inflated sealed bag.

## Does weighing fish hurt?
