Build a small balance beam with two containers on each end.
Place the object of unknown weight in one of the containers. Add water to the other container until a ballance is achived. Measure the volume of water required to achive the balance and you have your weight. 1 litre = 1 kilogram, 1 mililitre = 1 miligram.
If one was interested in collecting imperial measurements you could try off setting the water container on the beam to perform the conversion. Weigh side 2.2 times longer than the water catchment side.( I haven't tried this, but it should work...

Experiment to prove acceleration due to gravity is independent of mass?

Repeat Galileo's experiment: drop two objects of different weight, from a tall building. Don't make the objects too small, otherwise, air resistance will interfere with your experiments.Repeat Galileo's experiment: drop two objects of different weight, from a tall building.

How does the weight of the parts that make up an object compare to the weight of the object?

to find the answer what you need to do is use a scale to measure how much the both objects shape that is how you can find your answer.

How do you read a doctor's scale?

To read a beam scale like the ones at the doctor's office, you start by making sure the scale is zeroed. The beam pointer must rest at the center mark with no weight on the platform. If the device is not zeroed, make sure the large and small sliding poises (weights) are at their zero position all the way to the left. If the pointer still doesn't rest at the center mark then use the zero adjustment screw, usually at the left side of the beam to correct it. Once the scale is zeroed, you take a weight reading by first estimating your approximate weight and sliding the small and large poises along their beams. The large poise increases the weight by large increments such as 50lbs while the small poise is used to increase the weight by finer increments of 0.25lb or so. Step onto the scale platform and adjust the position of the small poise until the beam pointer rests at the center mark (balanced). The weight reading is taken by adding the value of the poise positions. So if the scale balances with the large poise at the 150lb position, and the small poise at the 3.5lb position, your weight is 153.5lb.


What is the effect of temperature on the weight of an object?

Depends on the object and where it is. If it's immersed in a fluid then higher temperatures can make the atoms go more apart, making the object less dense. Same mass, but less weight, and less denser objects or collection of atoms weight less in fluids than denser objects (of the same atomic material). The effect would be very small for solid objects immersed in air, though.


What is the correct way to weigh yourself and stand on the scale?

Depends on the type of scale you're using, but regardless there should be some tips to follow. Stand up straight, with all of your weight over the scale, both feet on the scale. (If both of your feet are on the scale it shouldn't really matter how you stand, gravity will pull your weight down onto the scale and the scale will measure your weight.) Don't hold on to anything or support your weight on any external object. Also, make sure that the scale is on a firm, flat surface. A lino floor or cement floor would be the best. If you're using a hospital type scale, (the type will the little weights across a bar that you have to slide over to get a correct measurement) make sure that you stand still. Any movement will cause the balance to move and make correct weight measurement very difficult.

What are the similarities betweem small scale and large scale industries?

It is in fact a question of scale! A small scale business could be a back-street garage, with one owner and a couple of mechanics. A large scale business could be a car showroom with branches in several countries. No matter what their size, their similarities are that they are trying to keep in business, make a profit, and make a living.

How is a triple beam balance used?

A triple beam balance is used to measure the mass of items or things!! :]if you want to use a triple beam,put the item on the pan and use the big and small thing on those weight and when the line get to middle that is the weight or # Make sure that the scale is balanced at zero before you start to weigh the mass of an object. To make sure the scale is balanced on zero, look to the right part of the scale and make sure the two lines are next to each other. If it's not on zero, turn the knob on the left and turn in different directions to find out how to zero the balance # Take the object you want to measure place in the middle of pan. # Take the largest weight (usually the 100 gram weight) and move it towards the right. # Repeat step 3 with the 10s gram weight and the 1s gram weight. # Make sure that you are accurate and you add g (grams)at the end of your measurement. -CloudStrifeLover, Horseisle of Pally, Roan, and pinto server~!if you want to use a triple beam,put the item on the pan and use the big and small thing on those weight and when the line get to middle that is the weight or # Make sure that the scale is balanced at zero before you start to weigh the mass of an object.
