Factors Affecting Analytical Balances

Factors Affecting Analytical Balances

Updated 2020 January Analytical balances are the basic tools of quantitative analysis. They are used to accurately weigh samples and precipitates. The balances are able to provide accurate measurements to four decimal places, for example, 0.0001 grams. Due to the extremely sensitive nature of these instruments, there are several factors that can cause them to…
