  1. How do you find the sensitivity requirement?
    • Put 6mg on one side of the balance and measure the deviation, then put 10g on both sides and add 6mg on one side and measure the deviation and compart to the deviation
    • PLot the weight against the number of scale divisions shifted by each weight on graph paper
    • Make a straight line and measure the weight that will cause a shift of one scale division
  2. What is the equation for percent error?
    Percent error = [(sensitivity requirement)(100)]/[quatity desired]
  3. What is the equation for the smallest quantity to be weight?
    Smallest quantity to be weight = [(Sensitivity requirment)(100)]/[Permissible percent of error]
  4. What is the aliquot method?
    • Weigh a multiple of the quantitydesired
