Product Description

American Educational nickel-plated brass hooked weight set is designed for use with hanging balances, and for applications that include pressure, torque, and tensile strength testing. Nickel-plated brass weights are economical and durable. The set of nine weights includes two each 250g and 20g weights, one each 1,000g, 500g, 100g, 50g, and 10g, and a plastic storage box, and is 6 x 3.5 x 5 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.)

Calibration weights are used to measure the weight or mass of an object using a balance or scale, or to calibrate other weights or instruments. Calibration weights can be certified or uncertified. Certified weights meet strict guidelines for accuracy and can usually be recertified. Certified weights are used in labs where a high degree of accuracy and repeatability is required. Uncertified weights are used where a lower degree of accuracy is required, including student laboratories, rough weighting operations, and measuring force. Hooked and slotted weights are often used to measure pressure, torque, and tensile strength, and to demonstrate basic laws of physics. Calibration weights differ from lab weights, which are general purpose weights used to hold an object in place, similar to a paperweight.

Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.

American Educational Products manufactures educational and supplemental learning materials including math, science, and reading/language arts for pre-kindergarten through grade 12 students. The company, founded in 1986, is headquartered in Fort Collins, CO.
