# What's heavier a bath of water or a bath of water with someone in it?

I need to seal a bath edge against a wall but need to ensure the bath is at it's heaviest before applying the sealer so there are no gaps left when the bath us emptied. The question is, what is heaviest, a bath of water or a bath of water with someone in it.

Holy smokes Frank, how much flex do you think that set up is going to have? Did you use broom handles to frame under it? Just use a good, flexible, acrylic latex caulk and you'll be fine.

Water: 8.3 lbs/ gal (average 20gal/ bath) 8.3 x 20 = 166 pounds

+

Average man = 200 lbs

Total average : 366 pounds

A human being weighs about the same as water by volume so unless you get someone that will completely fill the tub a tub full of water is much heavier than a tub with someone in it.

Let's see.  If I eat a big hamburger, am I heavier or the same weight?

all depends on the body frame of the person
