I'm making a scale with a ruler, triangle, and two light containers for school to work as a functioning mass weighing machine. One cubic centimeter of water weighs one gram exact. Even if I new the volume of that I got nothing to measure with besides a ruler. Is there any item that weighs an exact gram to calibrate the scale? Or does someone know how I can measure out one cubic centimeter of water with a ruler?

A small paperclip?

Water is suppose to be at 3.98 celcius, how cold is that? I wonder if I can make an ice cube and then use the ruler to measure a one centimeter cube. Put your brains together and figure something out. I'll google if a paper clip is exactly one gram

There is an official kilogram weight cylinder that is the international basis for the gram kept somewhere in France, but they've found out recently that it's losing mass.

Paper is sold in Grams per square meter. So an A4 (1/16th of a1 square meter) page would weigh 5g for the average 80 g/m^2 office paper. Cut the paper into 5 equal pieces and each one would weigh 1g. This may not apply to US paper densities though.

4 degrees centigrade is the approximate temperature inside a fridge.
