    Measuring powder


    Is there any way to measure 250 mg of a 1 gram powder besides a scale?

    No. Different powders are different densities, so there's no accurate scoop or anything. You have to weigh it.

    I wouldn't do it but you could simply take the 1g and divide it into 4 equal portions. Each portion would be 250mg. I'm sure you'd have some amount of error.

    That is exactly what I was tempted to do. I am sure it could be quite off, but how much?

    You could use a microscope and individually count out the particles, assuming they are the same size you could do it in a few days j/k

    Thats an excellent idea!

    I am thinking that the chem lab scale at my college will do just fine.

    How bout spending $50 for a scale. Everything nowdays comes in powder form and a scale is a very useful tool to have around the house.

    Do a search for scale. I posted a thread some time ago.

    I wouldn't divide it by hand on potent compounds. That would be dangerous. Get a scale with at least 0.01g or 10mg precision - a cheap $13 analog scale would work.

    You can get a Lucky 11 analog gem scale for $10. Thats what I use. Its accurate to 10 milligram increments. It sucks for measuring out large quantities because only 5 grams will fit on the tray, but it's great for small quantities.
