Question 12

Q12) Name the instrument which is commonly used to measure the mass of a body. State how is it used ?

Solution :

Beam balance is commonly used to measure the mass of a body.

When we hold up the balance, we observe that if there is nothing on either pan, the beam is horizontal. The body whose mass is to be measured is placed on the left pan. The standard weight is put on the right pan. They are so adjusted that the beam is again horizontal on holding the balance up. The total of the standard weight gives the mass of the given body.
