Overview

This is where I'm hanging research for building an Analytical Balance. I'd prefer to drive it with an arduino, maybe even make a shield for it.

Equipment/Acquisition

  • 20 Neodymium Magnets 15 x 10 x 5 mm Ring N48 (ebay: $35.78:arrived)
  • 20 Neodymium rod magnet 3mm x 10mm N35 (ebay-uk: $8.25:arrived)
  • Calibration weight set (100g to 10 mg) (ebay: $17:arrived)


Calibration Weight Calibration (yo dawg)

From the balance we used to verify the weights' mass: Calibration info from the balance just a few days before:
