The Price Comparison by Weight calculator compares two items given their price and weight or mass in different currency (e.g. U.S. dollar vs Chinese Yuan) and weight/mass (e.g. kilograms vs pounds) units.  To price compare three items by weight or mass, CLICK HERE.

INSTRUCTIONS:  Choose your preferred weight and currency units and enter the following:

  • (APrice)  This is price of Item A
  • (AMass) This is the weight or mass of Item A.
  • (BPrice) This is the price of Item B
  • (BMass) This is the weight or mass of Item B.

The calculator makes the currency and unit conversions and identifies which item is less expensive and by what percentage.

This calculator is intended to help you save money by comparing the price/weight of items to determine which is the better buy.

Mass and Weight Units

The default unit in this calculator is kilograms (kg).  However, this calculator has a very powerful engine that makes automatic conversions.  You can choose to make your price comparisons between amounts in any of the following units:
The mass and weight units available include the following:

vCalc's Mass / Weight Units
(mg) milligrams (oz) ounces (gr) grain(me) electron mass
 (g) grams (lb) pounds (ct) carat(u) atomic mass
 (kg) kilograms tons (U.S.) (dwt) pennyweightEarth Mass
 (t) metric tonstons (U.K.)troy ounceSolar Mass

To our science friends.  Yes we know that mass and weight are not the same. However, if you're making comparisons on the surface of the Earth, a reasonable conversion can be made between pounds (a weight or force) and kilograms (mass).
