It's free, accessible 24 hours a day, accurate, can fit multiple people and their favorite objects. It reacts slowly, and the readout is analog.<br> + <br> + === Springs vs. weights ===<br> + No springs are involved in this type of scale - the scale head has weights that move and balance the weight of the applied load. -["PaulThober" Former scale mechanic]<br> + <br> + Scales with weights are much more accurate than those with springs (used only on very cheap scales). Springs stretch, loose temper, corrode, and have non-linear force curves. Gravity, on the other hand is highly constant. It varies by position on earth (by almost 1%), but at that location it changes extremely little. Weight-based scales use levers so that (for instance) a 1g. internal weight might balance a 1kg. load. "Legal for Trade" means the scale has been certified by the Bureau of Weights and Measures to be accurate within a certain percentage. They usually have a tamper-evident seal.<br> + <br> + [[Image(scale_far.jpg)]]<br> + <br> + [[Image(scale_close.jpg)]]<br> + <br> + * This would have made a good mystery picture. -["KrisFricke"]<br> + <br> + * This page has absolutely nothing to do with ["Davis"] besides the parts about one particular scale behind ["Cruess Hall"], so I think this should be integrated over there.
