own weight

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

With weight usually a part of the whole designated ( weight or mass ), such as Tara in packaging or as a difference between the specified maximum permissible weight and payload in load-bearing structures (vehicles, buildings). While the dead weight of simple packaging is low and almost negligible (e.g. the paper cover of a cement sack), it can be the weight that determines the construction of large bridges, for example.
