It has come to my attention that a man by the name of "A$AP Ferg" has crafted a musical piece of art to help represent who i am and what i stand for. Ferg's song, Shabba, is a wonderful depiction of my everyday life; and for that reason exactly i decided to make a blog post regarding the physics of my dope style.
Ferg raps that he wears eight gold rings, four gold chains, and one gold tooth in an attempt to be like me. Lets take a closer look as this. Gold, being a fairly dense metal, is not light. Gold rings can weigh anywhere from 3 to 7 Grams (For this example lets say a single ring weighs 4 grams). Gold chains can really be almost any weight you want, but a sensible chain id wear would weigh about 40 grams. Finally, a gold tooth could weigh about 3 grams.
Lets do some simple calculations:
- Gold rings: 4g x 8 = 32g -----> .032 kg
- Gold chains: 40g x 4 = 160g -----> .16 kg
- Gold tooth: 3g -----> .006kg
All together ferg wears about .198kg of gold as he cops my swag.
But lets go a little further: if we take the weight we found above and multiply it by the acceleration due to gravity (10 m/s/s) you'll find that A$AP Ferg is weighed down by a constant net force of about 1.98 Newtons just due to the gold he wears.
Heres a list of some foods that weight about the same amount.
- 2 apples
- 2 hamburgers
- 4 sticks of butter
- 1 large bar of chocolate
- 4 chicken fingers (Arby's)
- 2 bagels (Bruegger's)
- 4 scrambled eggs (McDonalds)
Among those, here's some amounts of US currency that also weighs about 2 newtons.
- 204 dollar bills
- 100 dimes
- 40 nickels
- No one cares about pennys
In conclusion, I think it goes without saying that the amount of gold A$AP Ferg wears is impressive. Imagine if you had to carry around 4 scrambled eggs with you all day every day. Not only would that get annoying, but it'd be SUPER messy!
I hope you enjoyed this Shabba- Related physics post. If you would like to hear the song that i am referring to in this post (Shabba- A$AP Ferg) you'll have to find that on your own. It can not be posted on this site and shouldn't be viewed by anyone underage due to the explicit nature of language used. I may be Shabba Ranks but i still have class!
With love, your friend
