Wate (wa) is a unit of weight approximately equal to the average weight of an adult human — 150 pounds, 68.04 kilograms, or 0.075 ton. This unit is ironic for being a homophone of weight. The unit is used mainly to specify human weights, as well as weights of other heavy things that weigh hundreds of pounds, such as animals. The average weight of adult men in the United States is 1.197 wa (179.5 lb, 81.4 kg). The average weight of adult women in the United States is 0.980 wa (147.0 lb, 66.7 kg). So the average weight in both adult sexes living in the United States is 1.088 wa (163.2 lb, 74.0 kg). The average weight around the world is approximately 1 wate. For example, as of April 10, 2016, PlanetStar weighs 0.7182 wa (107.73 lb, 48.866 kg), which is really light for an adult man. Hopefully in the future, this unit shall pass on to the literature so wate will be as commonly used to measure human weights as pounds or kilograms.
