World's Heaviest Weight

    How do you measure big forces accurately? By calibrating your force transducer on the world's biggest weight - 1,000,000 pounds of force. This machine ensures planes don't break apart, jets provide required thrust, and rockets make it to their destination.

    Before visiting NIST in Washington DC I had no idea machines like this existed. Surely there's an accurate way to measure forces without creating such a huge known force?! Nope. This appears to be the best way, with a stack of 20 x 50,000 lb masses creating a maximum force of 4.45 MN or 1,000,000 pounds of force. I also wouldn't have thought about all the corrections that need applying - for example buoyancy subtracts about 125 pounds from the weight of the stack. Plus the local gravitational field strength must be taken into account. And, the gravitational field varies below grade. All of this must be taken into account in order to limit uncertainty to just five parts per million (.0005%)

I love that the US doesn't have a 1 LB mass standard. It is based off of the 1kg standard that exists in europe. Which means the US does actually use the metric system, they just convert everything into imperial so that their population can use it.

its really not massive enough to have any notable gravitational field (look up newtons law of gravitation and calculate the field, its 3.03x10^-5 / r^2 N/kg)
