A good digital scale or balance is essential for chemistry and physics — but it doesn’t have to break the bank. We’ve worked closely with digital scale manufacturers to find quality, affordable options for your home or lab. Make it easy with a digital scale! Or see how the physics of it works with mechanical balances and scales, including models from Ohaus.
For the parent-teacher on a budget, we offer economical triple beam balances and electronic digital scales. Mechanical balances are perfect for demonstrating concepts of mass and weight and can be extremely accurate, while digital balances are fast and easier to use. For younger kids, use a mass set and the primary or school balance. Scales typically measure in grams, with other weights available.
