Q: What is the difference between a mechanical and digital balance?

The main difference between a mechanical balance and digital balance is that mechanical balances and scales require the user to manually calculate weighing results, whilst balances with digital operation will display weighing results with minimal effort. The advantages of using a mechanical balance are that they tend to be cheaper and are often used in environments that do not have access to a power mains.
