Q: What are the benefits of using a mechanical balance for weighing experiments?

A: The primary benefits of using mechanical balances are that they do not require a mains power supply in order to function and are relatively cheap in price. In schools, students are often required to carry out weighing experiments as part of an education curriculum, mechanical scales and balances are often preferred by teachers for this situation as they are typically more hardy, portable and easy to stack and store away with minimal maintenance.
