Rounding[edit source]

The equipment screen seems to round down to the last whole kilogram, not to the nearest kg. For example, 0-9 pie tins weigh "0 kg", 10-19 weigh "1 kg", and 20-28 weigh "2 kg". From this, pie tins weigh 0.1 kg, and the screen is rounding down. I've checked with some other items too. -- Creidieki 15:42, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Max Weight[edit source]

they should really have a max weight, because i just tried a little experiment. i put on my full rune with kite and warhammer (i beleive the heaviest free to play set of armor, and capes and boots and gloves don't have weight that contributes at all) and then bought 28 bronze platebodies. that got me up over 300kg which is over 650 pounds! this is only in free to play. I am not sure if this is the max weight available to free to play. i'm sure there is a much higher weight max for members because there is armor made out of granite. Another thing, with over 300kg in my inventory, i wasn't slowed down all that much. there seems to be a dropoff point or something once you reach a certain weight limit. i beleive it slowed me down about the same as carrying a load full of bars. uh, not logged in, just call me Captain Hemo. 19:40, 16ish January 2008 i'm not really expecting a response from this, but what the hell?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 2008-01-23T03:41:41.

I see your point. But I'd prefer to keep it, or we wouldn't be able to do stuff like that. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 23:36, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Mass[edit source]

Kilograms measure mass, not weight... May be coloured blue in the near 18:06, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Sure, in Physics. But "in everyday usage, the mass of an object in kilograms is often referred to as its weight." (quoted from Wikipedia:Kilogram). "In commerce and in many other applications, weight means the same as mass as that term is used in physics." (quoted from Wikipedia:Weight). The correct unit for weight should strictly be Newtons, but who cares? Jagex doesn't seem to mind; they use kilogrammes to represent weight, not mass.   az talk   18:25, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
Ah k. May be coloured blue in the near 18:31, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
A unit of mass can be used as a unit of weight as f = ma, or in the case of runescape's gravity f = mg 20:10, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

Heaviest p2p tradeable items?[edit source]

Thought it would be of intrest for the article, but I don't know of it. After the three oil-based quest items, I would expect it to be something like chompies. tobylaneTalk 20:41, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

It would actually be full dragon and 7 cannon sets :)

Minimum Weight[edit source]

If you wear what it says to wear for lightest weight in p2p, couldn't it be lighter? The boots of lightness reduce .2 kg if in the inventory and i don't think that if u have multiple boots of lightnesses it only reduces weight using one of the boots. So if u put 28 boots of lightnesses in ur inventory and wear all the weight reducing items shouldn't u be a able to achieve a lower weight?

Boots of lightness reduce by 2kg.

Spottier cape reduce by 6kg.

Penance gloves reduce by 8kg.

Minimum weight is -16kg from my knowledge.

Here is a table of P2P's minimum weight. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 03:31, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
No item is negative weight in inventory, values in the table as they are now are correct, just verified to be sure cause I personally though Penance gloves were -9kg but they must have changed that. My contributionsTHARKONSignatures I made 19:39, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
penance gloves weren't ever -9kg in my memory, and I've had them since 2007. 21:51, December 1, 2011 (UTC)

zero weight have the same outcome as negative weight?[edit source]

I read this in another article (can't remember which), that 0 weight does the same as negative weight to your run energy. Is this true? --Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 14:00, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

I think so. bad_fetustalk 14:01, April 3, 2010 (UTC)
I think we need to get a source for this. J22f 14:27, January 11, 2011 (UTC)

1017.5 eh?[edit source]

No, you belive none of rings weight anything, yes? Think again, check again, for something lunatic, yet quite lunaris. Oh but, that piece of junk isn't it all, there is another, even heavier type, that type that gives you access into spirit realm..  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 00:39, August 15, 2011 (UTC).

The articles on those pages are most likely incorrect. Every ring in my possession, which includes those two, weighs exactly 0. I tested Jennica's ring, Lunar ring, Explorer's ring 4, Dragonstone ring (i),Ring of Wealth, Ring of fire, Ring of duelling, Ring of charos (a)(i), Ring of visibility, Ring of slaying, Ferocious ring and the Ring of kinship. Thanks for pointing out the inconsistency, I will correct the articles in question. My contributionsTHARKONSignatures I made 18:10, August 17, 2011 (UTC)

But buh, silly, did you use 'Stats' option on these rings via Equipment Bonuses, surely?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 07:16, October 2, 2011 (UTC).

Yes, I did. My contributionsTHARKONSignatures I made 14:06, October 3, 2011 (UTC)

Is Weight still there?[edit source]

Umm after the eoc, weight is gone or nowhere to see. Can someone baloon travel and tell me if there still is a limit?

How to weigh items[edit source]

I'm copying here the part of the original page's content - info about items useful when weighing. 5-x Talk 16:01, June 24, 2013 (UTC)

After a heavy process of elimination and extensive use of a self-made calculator, PlNG devised a key set of items to use to weigh items. These figures are exact, and the toughest challenge was to find RuneScape's lightest item in order to exactly weigh items. Surprisingly, these items aren't difficult to obtain.

Note: It does not exactly have to be the Miscellaneous key, any key that looks like this key theoretically weighs the same, but do check it before accepting it.

Item Image Weight (kg)
Gnomeball Gnomeball 0.5
Ground bat bones Ground bat bones 0.1
Empty oyster Empty oyster 0.08
Vial of water Vial of water 0.02
Miscellaneous key* Miscellaneous key 0.01
Rock (ore) Rock (ore) 0.001
The above info was removed from the encyclopedia page because it's wrong. --Saftzie (talk) 20:00, October 2, 2014 (UTC)
No... It's probably correct. 5-x Talk 20:56, May 16, 2015 (UTC)
Followup, not all keys are the same (but I tested with brass and shiny keys and they worked), and elemental rock can be substituted with Lily of the valley. Captain's log weighs 0.5kg as well. So the above info is indeed correct. 5-x Talk 21:24, May 16, 2015 (UTC)

Lightest item table[edit source]

The table for lightest items appears to be broken, tested on different browsers and the lightest items don't show up. I'm guessing the code is broken but I don't know how to fix it. Rabbit Fear (talk) 19:42, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

I think I fixed it, but because the Weight property in the infoboxes uses the weight of the item when not equipped, it only display items that weigh 0 kg or more. And because there are so many 0 kg items, it has put items in the table like the Saradominist banner, no longer obtainable. Perhaps infobox templates could be modified to include weight when equipped. Habblet (talk) 20:12, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
I found this: "Category:Items_with_negative_weight" I'm not sure if the code is able to fetch items from categories and sort them in the correct slot or not, if so it could work instead of the current infobox code which isn't working as intended for the lightest items Rabbit Fear (talk) 00:07, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
