THE

ANALYTICAL
BALANCE
BRYLE MATTHEW F. BACATAN

OBJECTIVES
To be able to familiarize the usage of
the analytical balance
To be able to measure the mass of a
sample on the analytical balance.
List the sources of errors in the weighing
process.
Estimate the magnitude of the errors in
determining the mass of a sample.

HOW DID WE DO IT?


o We Inspected the balance. Familiarize
ourselves with the basic balance controls.
NOTE: it is important to find the ON/OFF control
and the tare.

Zero the balance by pressing the tare button

o Determined the mass of a clean, dry


weighing bottle (without its lid).
o

Determined the mass of the weighing


bottle lid separately.

HOW DID WE DO IT?


o Determined the total mass of the weighing
bottle
plus the lid.
o Compared this result with the sum of the
separate
weights of the bottle and the lid to
see how close the weights are.
o

Reweighed the weighing bottle without the


lid to see how reproducible this
weight is.

HOW DID WE DO IT?


o Rolled the weighing bottle around our hands;
i.e., handled it and placed a fingerprint on it.
o We breathe on it several times. Weighed it
again and compare the results to earlier
weights.
o Placed the weighing bottle in a drying oven
for
two to three minutes and re weighed it

HOW DID WE DO IT?


o

Weigh the weighing bottle lid.

o Removed the lid from the balance and wrote


with a pencil on the ground-glass surface.
o Reweigh the lid and note the difference in weight.

duplicability of the results
o

Statistical Analysis on the Results

#WHOGOATS TO QUESTIONS
Ano ba ang meron siya, na wala ako
The Analytic Balance is needed when the
need for accuracy is high with a 0.0001g and
requires a specific location where its reading is
optimum.
Paano ba ang magmahal?
The Analytical Balance costs at $1,790.00
USD/EACHto $8,750.00 USD/EACH,it
requires too much love and care.

#WHOGOATS TO QUESTIONS
Masakit kapag hindi mo alam!
Analytical balances have Leveling Bubbles
that needs to be checked from time to time.

Maliit na bagay, Malaki ang impact


Even the slightest thing has a big impact on
your result.

Iba ang Hot, Iba ang Cool!


Temperature affects the results, it gradually
continues to increase or decrease this may be
the problem

#WHOGOATS TO QUESTIONS
Sadyang may mga bagay na dapat itago
Place analytical balances in a protected environment
away from temperature extremes such as direct
sunlight, heating and AC vents.

Kailangang umiwas sa Traffic


Avoid heavy traffic that causes vibrations in the
weighing area.

Wag pilitin kapag hindi na kaya!


Avoid overloading, which could cause hysteresis of
mechanical parts.
