Most people are familiar with a weighing scale. The bathroom scale is probably the most familiar. We all understand the basics of using a scale. You put an object on a scale and it returns a weight value. But did you know that there is a science of weighing called Metrology? If your business depends on scales, the science of metrology becomes important, as it helps you maintain a dependable and accurate weighing device.
