The publication bargains commonly with direct mass selection by way of a traditional balances. It covers the heritage of the stability from the beginnings in Egypt just before 3000 BC to contemporary advancements. All stability forms are defined with emphasis on clinical balances. tools of oblique mass selection, that are utilized to very gentle gadgets like molecules and the fundamental debris of topic and celestial our bodies, are incorporated. As extra information, today’s brands are indexed and the profile of significant businesses is reviewed.
Several hundred pictures, reproductions and drawings exhibit tools and their makes use of. This booklet contains advertisement weighing tools for item and uncooked fabrics in workshops in addition to symbolic weighing within the historic Egyptian’s rite of ‘Weighing of the Heart’, the Greek destiny stability, the Roman Justitia, Juno Moneta and center a long time scenes of the final Judgement with Jesus or St. Michael and of recent balances. the pictures are chosen from the slide-archives of the past due Richard Vieweg (1896-1972) (former President of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, Braunschweig, Germany), of the overdue Hans R. Jenemann (1920-1966) (former head of the Analytical Laboratory of Schott & Gen., Mainz, Germany) and of his spouse Irene (1933-2008) and of Erich Robens.

By compensation of weight forces by means of an electric current through a coil instead of a counterweight it is possible to substitute the unit mass by electrical units, supposed the geometry of the electromagnetic device is known. The Watt balance is a double-arm weighing scale with single pan for the kilogram test mass and a coil surrounding a permanent magnet at the opposite side (Fig. 5). The 22 1 Mass and Gravity (a) (b) Fig. 5 (a) Diagram of an Ampère or Watt balance. (b) Watt balance of the UK National Physical Laboratory.

On the other hand Christiaan Huygens (1629–1695) proposed a wave theory of light [87] and later on by means of diffraction experiments the wave-like nature of light was clearly demonstrated. In the late 1800s, James Clerk Maxwell explained light as the propagation of electromagnetic waves according to the Maxwell equations [88]. By the turn of the 20th century, a duality of light was accepted. 16 1 Mass and Gravity Fig. 3 Light beam consisting of travelling wave packets (photons). Within the packet the oscillations have the frequency of the electromagnetic radiation.

The practice of using the abbreviation ‘mcg’ rather than the SI symbol ‘µg’ was formally mandated for medical practitioners in 2004 by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organisations (JCAHO) in their ‘Do Not Use’ List: Abbreviations, Acronyms, and Symbols because hand-written expressions of ‘µg’ can be confused with ‘mg’, resulting in a thousand-fold overdosing. The mandate was also adopted by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices. The metric carat or Karat is a unit of mass used for measuring gems and pearls.
