Assuming all of the pennies are U.S. pennies minted after 1982, each one has a mass of 2.5 g.

  1. Weigh the can of pennies. That weight is the gross weight.
  2. Temporarily transfer the pennies to another container and weigh the empty can.
  3. Subtract the weight of the empty can from the gross weight. The difference is the net weight.
  4. If the net weight is in pounds, multiply it by 16 oz/lb.
  5. Multiply the net weight in ounces by 28.34952 g/oz.
  6. Divide the product by 2.5 g/penny.
