On 1st October 2021, 7th grade students of the John Paul II Integrated Public Elementary School No. 14 in Radom took part in a physics lesson at RADWAG. The youth had the opportunity to attend an interactive lecture in the auditorium, where they learned about the impact of this field of science on everyday life. The lecturer presented how physics, its theorems and related physical quantities, are used in RADWAG products. The students saw how the “heart of the balance”, i.e. the electromagnetic mechanism, looks and works. The balances that served as examples of how the laws of physics could be applied in practice were as follows: a moisture analyzer, precision and analytical balances and a microbalance, which is a device that weighs with an accuracy of 1 microgram. During the lesson, apart from balances, the students observed how physical quantities change in real life. This was possible due to the use of the THBR 2.0 ambient conditions module. It continuously monitored temperature, humidity, pressure, and vibration, and additionally displayed air density.
The next stage of the lesson was a visit to the part of RADWAG where the previously seen balances are manufactured. At the end of the lecture, a contest was held to test the knowledge of the issues raised during the lecture, and prizes were awarded to the most attentive listeners.
“Physics Lesson with RADWAG” was given by Radosław Wilk, Laboratory Products Manager and Senior Product Trainer.
We sincerely thank the students and their teachers for their visit.
