PMID:  18699198     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
A versatile and inexpensive capacitance-torsion balance has been developed to measure, simultaneously and continuously, small forces and displacements in remotely located samples. It can also be used as a sensitive dilatometer or as a microbalance. The present instrument provides an output voltage change of 1 V for a load change of 3 g and a displacement of 5x10(-5) m. These load and displacement ranges can be independently chosen by adjusting the geometrical configuration of the balance, whereas the sensitivity is independent of the range.
