## What is a quadruple beam balance?

Quadruple Beam Balance 311g is an instrument that is designed to easily and simply measure and weigh your research items and materials. The stainless steel constructed product has a weight pan that holds all of your materials for weighing and measuring different items used in your experiments or for testing purposes.

## What is beam balance used for?

The beam balance is a device used for the determination of the mass of a body under gravitation. Beam balance is used for high precision measurements like masses up to 250g, it consists of a pair of scale pans one at each end of a rigid beam.

The mechanical balance consists, essentially, of a rigid beam that oscillates on a horizontal central knife-edge as a fulcrum and has the two end knife-edges parallel and equidistant from the centre. The loads to be weighed are supported on pans hung from bearings.

What are precision balances?

In the weighing industry, we define precision balances as “a balance used to weigh quantities to a very precise number, usually up to one milligram”. They’re sometimes referred to as “top loading balances”. Also, precision balances have a higher capacity than analytical balances, but a lower readability.

### What does beam balance mean?

Definitions of beam balance. a balance consisting of a lever with two equal arms and a pan suspended from each arm. types: analytical balance, chemical balance.

### Where is physical balance used and why?

Note- Physical balance is mostly used to compare the weights or masses of two objects. A spring balance is mainly used if we want to measure the weight of an object. The spring balance gives an accurate and precise reading of the weight of the object and is far better than the physical balance.

How do you use a beam balance?

To use a triple beam balance, place an object on the pan and adjust the counterweights until the pointer is balanced at the zero line. Then determine the mass by looking at the position of each counterweight. Add the masses given by each counterweight to find the total mass of the object.

What are analytical balances used for?

An analytical balance is the most precise because it has a higher readability, measuring to the nearest 0.0001g. Analytical balances usually include draught proof weighing chambers for precise measuring of mass and are often used alongside anti-vibration tables to increase accuracy.

#### What type of balances are used in laboratories?

Four Types of Laboratory Balances

• Semi Micro, Micro & Ultra Micro Balances. For weighing the smallest amounts, ultra micro and micro balances are selected.
• Analytical Balance.
