Modern

weights

Today,

people

can

weigh

themselves

on

simple

household

scales.

Larger

objects,

such

as

elephants

and

heavy

trucks,

are

weighed

on

special

scales.

These

scales

work

just

like

household

scales,

except

they

are

much

bigger.

Cars

are

weighed

on

a

weighbridge.

Doctors’

offices

have

very

accurate

scales.
