GET THE LEAD OUT with
WinDerby TUNGSTEN ROD SEGMENTS – (the kit includes 4 Tungsten segments for a total just over 1oz)
Tungsten is one of the most dense elements at 19.3g/cc. In it’s pure form Tungsten is similar in density to Gold(Au). It is only surpassed in density by Rhenium(Re), Osmium(Os), Iridium(Ir), Platinum(Pt) and Neptunium(Np). This makes Tungsten perfect for high density weighting.
Tungsten is also non-toxic which make it a great alternative to lead when handling is an issue.
IMPORTANT: Although Tungsten is non-toxic, it is NOT a toy for small children to play with. Always wash hands after use, keep away from food and your mouth. Click here to view MSDS
Size: approx. 9.5mm x 56mm each (.375″ x .22″)
Lets do the math –
Pure Tungsten is 19.3 g/cc
Volume of a cylinder = ¶r2h
3.14 x .475cm2 x .56cm = .396 cc
19.3 x.396 = 7.565 g
These segments weigh in at about 7.08 g (approx .25oz)
So these tungsten segments are 93% Pure – or 18 g/cc
Any variations in weight are due to cut length and diameter. NOT density.
