30 to 35 poundsSome examples are books, paperwork, magazines, office & desk items, kitchen utensils, small kid’s toys, etc. On average a small box or “book box” should weigh 30 to 35 pounds.
So the final estimate is: weight of box = volume of box × proportion of box with books × density of books. This is 50L × 0.6 × 1kg/L which is 30kg. This is actually a bit more than my initial guesstimate, which I would now revise upward to 20-35kg.
Hardcover books generally weigh between two to seven pounds (0.9 kg to 3.18 kg). Weight and mass are not interchangeable terms. Mass is resistance to acceleration and is also defined as the measure of how much matter and object contains, and weight is the force of gravity on an object.
