Precision Balances Help

Q: Are precision balances necessary in schools?

A: Yes, however this will depend on the age group of the students. Most compact scales and balances are perfectly acceptable for younger students being introduced to weighing, however precision balances may be required for students aged 16 and above; this will largely depend on the activity however. Some precision scales and balances have built-in density determination software used for carrying out more complex science density experiments, they usually offer higher readabilities in order to measure significantly smaller samples than your standard digital scale.
