Electronic balances are highly valuable measurement equipment for chemical, analytical and formulation operations in industries and quality laboratories. They are used, like scales in general, to measure the mass of a body or substance, only since it is a precision scale, the measurement is exact. To weigh correctly on a laboratory balance, it is necessary to take into account the possible sources of error and act to avoid or minimize them.
Despite the perfection achieved in the manufacture of balances, the disturbing effects of the environment and poor practice can result in weighing errors. When you use these amazing tools, you have to be very careful because even if it is very easy to use devices, if you don't follow the steps in the right way, you increase the risk of making mistakes.
