Analytical Balance

Analytical Balance

What is an analytical balance?

what is Analytical Balance
Analytical balance is a lab-instrument used to determine mass of any matter very precisely. These analytical balances are very sensitive and expensive lab-instruments, and also upon the accuracy and precision of analytical balance the accuracy of lab-analysis result depends so handle these balances very carefully. Generally used analytical balances are balances with the capacity of 100 gram to 200 gram and the sensitivity of 0.1 milligram to 0.001 milligram. For any quantitative chemical analysis there is need of analytical balance for the weighing of sample for analysis and weighing of reagents for solution preparation. Analytical balance pan used to put sample on it is enclosed in a glass-fitted case, means analytical balance sensitivity requires that it to be protected by the draft shield or enclosure.

Definition of Analytical Balance

Analytical balance is a lab instrument with a scale to measure the mass to a high degree of precision. Generally used analytical balances are balances with the capacity of 100 gram to 200 gram and the sensitivity of 0.1 milligram to 0.001 milligram.

Where are analytical balances used?

Analytical balances are used in labs so also known as ‘Lab Balances’. In labs analytical balances are used for quantitative analysis like for measuring of sample, preparation of standard solutions etc.

How to weigh on an analytical balance?

These are the following steps to start weighing operation on an analytical balance-
  • Wear hand gloves.
  • Open the door of balance and place the container on pan of analytical balance.
  • Now, close the door of the analytical balance and wait for some time.
  • After some time value on balance display or scale get stabilizes, and shows some weight.
  • Now, press the tare button to get 0.0000 gram reading on display.
  • Add the sample until the required weight.
  • Now, close the door and wait for some time.
  • After some time value on balance display or scale get stabilizes, and shows some weight.
  • Record the net weight.
  • Clean the balance after use.

What is analytical balance uncertainty?

Analytical balance uncertainty is the margin of error in weighing, means when making measurements or weighing there is always an element of uncertainty in measurements or weighing. Determination of measurement uncertainty in analytical balance results is an integral part of the balance calibration.

Why should I calibrate my analytical balance?

Calibration of analytical balance is very necessary because balance calibration ensures that weighing balance is precise, correct, truthful, accurate, and satisfies different standards like ISO, GLP, and GMP. Calibration of analytical balances should be documented, as it specifies the quality of measurements. Documented calibration should be performed repeatedly, at some time intervals (like 3months+/-15days). 

How should I calibrate my analytical balance?

You should not calibrate your balance on your own, but it should be calibrated by third party. Means, calibration of balance is performed by third party authorized service technician.  This third party authorized service technician follow a standard procedure, and utilizes some calibration software to calibrate your analytical balance.

What is the analytical balance minimum weight?

Generally minimum weight of analytical balance is not fixed, means it is different for different balances and it depends on different factors like performance of load cell, location of balance, and surrounding environment. Minimum weight is smallest weight that can be measured with accuracy. If we try to measure below this minimum weight, we get results higher relative measurement uncertainty than the required weighing accuracy. So measurements below minimum weight cannot be trusted.
If you want to determine the minimum weight of your balance, you need to assess measurement uncertainty in the working environment.

Analytical balance accuracy and precision – what is the difference and how to test them?

Precision in balances refers to the closeness of two or more measurements to each other, means if we measure 5gram sample and its display shows 5.0001 in 1st time measurement, 5.0000 in 2nd time measurement, 4.9999 in 3rd measurement, and 5.0000 in 4th measurements so all these results (5.0001, 5.0000, 4.9999, and 5.0000) are very close to each other.
Accuracy in balances means how accurate result it gives so, Accuracy in balances refers to the closeness of a measured value to a known value, and Accuracy in balances is based on repeatability, readability, eccentricity and non-linearity. Accuracy of analytical balance can be tested using
  • A traceable calibrated weight also known as external reference weight having a known mass. And these weights are calibrated by third party and come with documented proof.
  • Accuracy of balance must be determined at its location of use.

What is Analytical Chemistry ?

Analytical chemistry is all about, what an analytical chemist do in an analytical chemistry lab. And simply we can say that analytical chemistry is the branch of chemistry for qualitative analysis and quantitative analysis of compounds and mixtures by using different test methods and techniques like flame tests, chemical tests, precipitation, titration, chromatography, spectroscopy, separation, microscopy etc.
Definition of Analytical Chemistry- Analytical Chemistry is the branch of chemistry deals with the study of material examination to separate out them into different components and identifying all components and how much these components present in material. There are different analytical methods and techniques to perform these tasks... read more

Catalytic Decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide H2O2 – Elephant’s Toothpaste Experiment

Catalytic Decomposition of H2O2 – Elephant’s Toothpaste Experiment

Catalytic Decomposition of H2O2 – Elephant’s Toothpaste Experiment
Elephant's toothpaste is a foamy substance formed as a result of rapid decomposition of hydrogen peroxide. Elephant’s toothpaste reaction experiment is generally used for classroom demonstrations as it requires fewer ingredients and makes a "volcano of foam".
Elephant toothpaste

Description:

H2O2 is decomposed by Iodide Ion. Iodide ion is used as a catalyst and these iodide ions come from KI (Potassium Iodide) or NaI (Sodium Iodide). This decomposition reaction liberates water, oxygen and heat.

Materials:

30% H2O2 (Hydrogen Peroxide)
1 Liter Graduated cylinder
KI (Potassium Iodide) or NaI (Sodium Iodide).
Food Color for fun
Liquid Dish Detergent

Procedure:

1.  Pour 50 mL of 30% H2O2 (Hydrogen Peroxide) in 1 L graduated cylinder.
2.  Then, add 3-4 drops of food color in 1 L graduated cylinder to make colored H2O2 solution.
3.  Then, start adding liquid dish detergent or soap from the side of 1 L graduated cylinder to make a small layer of liquid dish detergent or soap over colored H2O2 solution.
4.  With the help of small beaker add KI or NaI in the cylinder containing H2O2 solution. As a result of reaction, oxygen gas generated and this gas creates large amount of colored foam. This foam comes out of graduated cylinder.

Discussion:

Decomposition of H2O2 (Hydrogen Peroxide) yields O2 (oxygen) and H2O (water). Reaction is catalyzed by I- (Iodide Ion); These Iodide Ion comes from KI or NaI

Reaction-

H2O2 (Aq) + I-1 (Aq) ---> H2O (liquid) + IO- (Aq)
IO- (Aq) + H2O2 (Aq) ---> H2O (liquid) +O2 (g) + I- (Aq)

Overall Reaction-

2H2O2 (Aq) ---> 2H2O (liquid) +O2 (g)

Safety:

Wear proper protective equipment likes hand-gloves and safety goggles when preparing and demonstrating this experiment. Remember concentrated H2O2 (Hydrogen Peroxide) can cause burns.
