The balance is used to measure the mass of a body or substance or also their weight, since between mass and weight there is a well defined relationship. In the laboratory the balance is used to carry out quality control activities, to prepare mixtures of components in predefined proportions and to determine specific densities or weights. Its origins lie more than 3500 years before Christ, in Egypt.

The scales differ from each other by the design, the principles used and the metrology criteria they use. At present it could be considered that there are two large groups: the mechanical scales and the electronic scales.

Mechanical balances

Some of the most common are the following:

Electronic balances

Electronic balances involve three basic elements:
