You’re sitting at home, ready to watch some Netflix. You reach for one of the many bags of chips you have on hand, only to realize that it’s full of air. It turns out that each chip is just a tiny piece of food floating around in a massive void. This has been your life for 20 years, and it’s about time someone explained it to you.
A bag of chips weighs approximately 23 grams. That’s just over half an ounce and about the same as a nickel. If you’re used to measuring in pounds, that’s about 0.1 pounds or 4% of the weight of an average person (who weighs 170 pounds). In metric units, a bag of chips weighs 200 grams. This is equivalent to just under 7 ounces (or about 1/3rd pound).
To calculate the percentage of air in a bag of chips, you’ll need to first weigh your bag on a scale and record its weight. Then, take that number and divide it by the total weight of the chip bag (including contents). For example: If your bag weighs 1 pound (16 ounces), but has only 10 ounces of chips inside, then its air content is 16%.
The answer depends on the size of your bag and the type of chip you’re looking at. For example, if you were to buy a large bag of Doritos, it would contain roughly 3.5 ounces (100 grams) of chips and 4 ounces (120 ml) of air–that’s about 50% air by volume. In other words, the weight of the air inside that large bag would be almost exactly equal to its contents’ total weight! This may seem strange at first glance because we’re used to thinking about food as being solid objects with mass; however this is actually quite logical: since most foods are made up primarily from water molecules which have no real density or mass per se (they’re mostly empty space), then when those molecules get squeezed together into something like a potato chip or pretzel stick their overall density is reduced significantly – meaning there isn’t much left over after all those molecules are packed together tightly enough against each other so that they don’t move around anymore…and thusly creating an object with little-to-no volume but still having plenty enough mass left over inside it so that we could keep eating them forever without ever feeling full up until now anyway even though they’re both delicious types
In conclusion, it is important to know how much air is in a bag of chips. You can use this information to make better decisions about the food you buy and eat.
