    Pocket Scale Symbols.....Need help !

    I have a Pocket Scale that displays the following symbols when the MODE key is used: g,oz,gn,dwt,ozt,ct. I know what these mean, but there is another symbol d under the display screen that is used like this: d = 0.1g

    What does the d stand for ? The scale instructions don't say and it couldn't be for pennyweight, because that symbol is already addressed in the MODE selections as dwt.

    Thanks for the help !

    Small d is deci or tenth. If da would be dika or ten. I have a book on units of measurements and I think it's amazing how many there are. Some rarely used except in specific industries. Like a hogshead (hhd) = 63 gallons or does anyone remember how long a rod is.(16.5 feet/5.0292 m.
    Interesting reading if your giving to such things.

    Red James Cash,

    Thanks, but as I indicated in my post, I know what these: g,oz,gn,dwt,ozt,ct mean.

    I'm asking what the d means.

    Any idea ?

    Decided to look it up in the Random House dictionary& dwt means penny weight(s) ,but d.w.t. means deadweight tonnage.

    Pocket Scale Symbols.....Need help !

    Thanks everybody for your replies !

    As mentioned in my thread starter, "What does the d stand for ? The scale instructions don't say."

    So in the meantime, I've been doing more searching on the internet for a definition of the d symbol. Remember, the definition must be in context with the d used on electronic pocket scales, as it could mean something else on a different application.

    Finally, I gave up on the internet after trying 6 or 8 search phrases and getting nada and called the company that made my pocket scale and discussed with them. They said the symbol d stands for resolution. Coming from a background in the metal working industry, I knew that a manufacturing tolerance was needed, so ask about this and was told + or - 0.1g.

    So that answers my question !

    Some scales '0' with an object on the scale. Say you have a vial that holds gold. You could put it on the scale and '0' out it's weight, then fill it and just weigh the contents. Maybe that has something to do with it also. Frank...

    Hvacker,

    Sorry I'm so late replying. When I first read your post #4 weeks ago, it didn't dawn on me at the time what you were getting at.

    Well, I decided to get on T'Net tonight and saw your above reply, so I re-read your original reply (pasted below), gave it more thought and made a connection !

    Small d is deci or tenth. If da would be dika or ten. I have a book on units of measurements and I think it's amazing how many there are. Some rarely used except in specific industries. Like a hogshead (hhd) = 63 gallons or does anyone remember how long a rod is.(16.5 feet/5.0292 m.
    Interesting reading if your giving to such things.

    I'm not certain about this, but perhaps you were giving me a subtle hint of resolution, by using the example of ten divided into finer divisions of tenths. An analogy would be the resolution of a TV screen being described in pixels per square inch of screen size (height x width). Depending on the resolution, each square inch of the screen would be composed of a certain number of pixels.

    Anyway, thanks for your help !

    Todd
