REDUCING THE UNCERTAINTY IN A MEASURE OF THE ACCELERATION OF GRAVITY FOR THE ELECTRONIC KILOGRAM

Author(s)

Richard L. Steiner, Beatrice Parker

Abstract

Calculating the force on a reference mass for the electronic kilogram experiment requires using both absolute and relative gravity meters to measure the acceleration of gravity. Tests have been conducted to achieve an uncertainty of less than 1 part in 108.
