Measuring Matter all rights reserved Mass Techniques
Mass is a measure of the amount of atoms (matter) an object possesses. Scientists have many different ways to measure mass. We use Triple beam balances and electronic balances to measure mass at Skyview. At first we use Triple beam balances because these balances require you to learn how to interpolate values on a number line, a valuable skill, and do not need electricity to work.
