Specific gravity of turds...

Postby Thunderbox on Sep 03 2008 7:25 am

...does anyone know what it is?

I mean regular turds, not diarrhea. We need this to work out the weight of a 27 litre capacity container full of crap.

Thanks.

I searched Google. 1.0 g/cm3 is accepted as the average density of human feces.

Therefore, 27 L of feces weighs around 27 Kg. If you're dealing with sinkers or floaters, it'll change.

That`s exactly the same as water - interesting. I thought it would have been less than that, maybe 0.85 - 0.90.

How can there be an absolute for this? What is the "average" turd? Turds vary wildly from person to person, diet to diet, day to day... who is to say what is the ideal?

Ok, so maybe "average" is not the best description. The "norm" would be better - between softy ice-cream at one end of the scale and a compacted behemoth at the other. Not so much adding all the scores and dividing by the number of samples, but taking the mean of the most common samples.

No problem, I`m going to take a set of scales and go to Dongsheng to personally weigh the output of those 832 households` offerings. I`ll post the results later.

Why do most turds sink if they have the same SG as water?

What's the source? What's the methodology? Again, I still want to know: who says what is average? Ask G Ras what his "average" poop is.
