How heavy would a human-sized Snickers bar be?

How heavy would a human-sized Snickers bar be?

ITT: People who think OP asked the redundant question of "how much would a human **weight** Snickers weigh if it was the same weight as a human". Obviously they mean if you scaled the dimensions of Snickers to be the same height (width and depth as well if not scaling proportionally to the correct Snickers ratio) and then calculated the weight of that based on the weight of a normal Snickers.

According to https://blog.go-walkabout.co.uk/2012/12/the-grand-chocolate-survey-2012/ A 58g Snickers bar is about 54.88cm3. According to Wolfram Alpha a human body is about 66400cm3. So if you took a fuckton of Snickers bars and sculpted them into a human it'd be about 71kg. If it was rectangle shaped...idk.

Human weight

How heavy is 100 pounds of feathers?


AdmiralSpeedy

How is that relevant? They said human sized. A Snickers that weighs the same as a human would be nowhere near the same size (height, width, and depth) as a human. To assume weight over external dimensions when someone says "size" is just an attempt at creating an argument when we all know they didn't mean weight.

Probably a pound

The average weight of a human (globally) is about 62 kg. So a human sized Snickers bar would be, on average, 62 kg.


AdmiralSpeedy

Lets call the average human height 5' 6", right in between 5' and 6'. A normal Snickers is 4" long * 1.25" wide * 0.75" thick and they weigh 48g. That means a human sized Snickers would be 16.5 times the size of a regular snickers (based on scaling it to 5' 6" long). 16.5 Snickers long * 16.5 Snickers wide * 16.5 Snickers thick * 48g = 215.622 kg. So no, it would not be 62 kg.

They didn't say average human height. They said average human sized. If they meant height but maintaining the same proportions at a Snickers bar then sure, I agree with you. But that wouldn't human sized, that would be a lot bigger than a human (well, average human).


AdmiralSpeedy

What else could they mean? You are being pedantic and needless nitpicky. You compare external dimensions when comparing the size of two things. People all weigh differently based on bone density, fat content, muscle content, and various other factors that do not necessarily mean they're visibility larger. It's called density. Obviously that means the only option would be to proportionally scale the Snickers to the same height as person, because of the height, width, and depth dimensions, the height is the one that varies the most and thus is the most compared and most sensible to use when making something human. I mean, if we went based on the width or depth it would be nowhere near the average human height and where do you measure from? The waist? The stomach? The chest? They're all different dimensions so you'd need to average, or just use the height which can be accurately measured only one way. One could argue that we should not scale the Snickers proportionally but rather conform it to the average dimensions of a human standing with their arms to their sides, however is it a Snickers any more or is it a block of chocolate and nuts?

A human sized snicker bar, not as heavy as a human. Different density between the two, you dilberry.


BaronMontesquieu

Settle Gretl. OP said human sized. Without any other information there's no other possible answer. Did they mean human height but proportionate dimensions to a Snickers bar? Maybe, but they didn't say that so who knows. Did they mean human volume but proportionate to Snickers density? Maybe, but they didn't say that so who knows. Did they mean an exact human replica made out of Snickers ingredients? Maybe, that would be 62 kg (on average). Feel free to interpret their question however you like and provide your own answer, or get OP to clarify.


gNomad88

Props to you for building off of that, you dilberry.


AdmiralSpeedy

Obviously they meant a human height Snickers with proportional dimensions. What else would they mean? Asking based on weight is redundant so that leaves height, because nobody compares the width of humans.


BaronMontesquieu

I don't make assumptions of what OP means. I answer their question as it stands or ask for clarification. So if you're unsure, ask OP for clarification.
