Mass to Force Guidance: Using mass weights not adjusted for force can result in a large measurement error. The two major measurement parameters typically affected are force and torque. Any measurement involving force should use force. There are acceptable formulas for correcting mass weights to force to enable companies who use mass for these applications to apply known forces. We created this mass-to-force guidance document to help reduce measurement errors associated with using mass weights for applications involving force.
