Perhaps the most widely misunderstood feature of a scale is the tare function. Simply put, tare allows the user to zero the instrument to cancel the weight of a container (such as a weighing dish or plastic bag) from the reading of the instrument, thus giving the true weight of the product being tested. Without tare, it would be necessary to manually subtract the weight of the container from the displayed value. Tare does not increase the capacity of a scale, however. If you are using a scale with a 100 gram maximum capacity and you place a 10 gram weighing dish on the pan and tare it, you are left with only 90 grams of capacity to do your weighing. Remember- it is an unsafe practice to overload any weighing device! Serious damage to your scale will almost certainly result from overloading it. Digital scales have a push button for tare, and some mechanical sclaes use a tare beam or screw adjustment to rebalance the instrument back to zero. Hanging scales rely on a spring constant to make the measurement, and may have a sliding faceplate or screw adjustment for tare.
