What is the BEST tool for measuring mass?
 A ruler B beaker C balance D spring scale
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -Mass is always measured using a beam balance . A spring balance gives different readings at different places on earth because it measures the weight not mass.

Detailed explanation-2: -One common method of measuring mass is to tare the scale and measure the mass directly. For example, this is how people weigh themselves. The other common method is to place a sample into a container and measure the mass of the container plus sample.

Detailed explanation-3: -Balances and Scales For the majority of everyday objects, a balance is used to determine an objectâ€™s mass. The balance compares an object with a known mass to the object in question. Different types of balances include digital scientific balances and beam balances, such as a triple beam balance.

Detailed explanation-4: -A double pan balance measures weight because it is measuring the gravitational force on the sample compared to the gravitational force on a standard weight. A triple beam balance measures the gravitational force on the sample that is to say the weight.

Detailed explanation-5: -An analytical balance is the most precise because it has a higher readability, measuring to the nearest 0.0001g. Analytical balances usually include draught proof weighing chambers for precise measuring of mass and are often used alongside anti-vibration tables to increase accuracy.
