# 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.

## 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

o

## 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.

weight.

## o Analysis on the Drops of water and the

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.
