Hi Starlett, Different substances have different weights (masses). What do you have 17 grams of?
To help you understand, if you had 17 grams of feathers, this might be a cup. If you have 17 grams of gold, it would be less than quarter of a teaspoon. I guess you're not measuring feathers or gold, but you get the idea.
