In many common areas of application, a weighing instrument or the weight it measures is just a means to an end: The value that is actually sought is calculated from the weight or mass that was determined by the weighing instrument. That is why this Manual of Weighing Applications describes the most widely used weighing applications in a series of separate booklets, with each booklet representing a complete and independent manual. Each of these booklets begins with a description of the general and theoretical basis of the application concerned – which in many cases cannot be done without using formulas and equations taken from the fields of physics and mathematics. The equations used are explained in the text, and the intermediate steps necessary for arriving at the results given here are also included. Some readers may get the impression, at first glance, that the manual is just a collection of (many) equations, but we do hope that the most important points are familiar to all readers, even in this context. Each separate booklet also contains a chapter giving detailed examples of applications, as well as an index where you can look up keywords to find the information you need. At the back of each booklet, just before the index, we have included a list of questions on the subject so that readers can check whether they have understood what they have read and can put it into practice.
