A good balance is an important piece of equipment for chemistry. For home chemistry, the price of the balance is unfortunately limiting ..
How should one go about picking a balance (for home chemistry; general guidelines are welcome too)? Specifically, I'm thinking whether to buy a model with 0.01g precision (up to 200g), or a one with 0.001g precision (up to 20g) (the latter is a so called "diamond balance" but probably does the job). Which one would serve me better?
