c. Since all mass standards (weights) are basically the same, with exceptions
such as manufacturing tolerances and requirements, we restrict our instruction to
weight classification 1, which is typical of all classifications. Classification 1
is made up of four separate groups or classes of weights, which are:
Class J - Metric weights designed as mg standards.
Class S - Metric weights designed as working standards for the calibration
of other weights.
Class S-1 Precision weights used for routine analytical work.
weights are expressed in units of avoirdupois, apothecary, and
troy, as well as metric weights.
