Probably one of the less intelligent questions, but does that mean that the scale itself weighs 1 kg, that there is 1 kg on the scale or can it mean both?
It could actually mean both. But presumably that the scales themselves amount to a weight of 1 kg does sound more natural.
It's a fine question Bluthund. I also was wondering if it meant the scale itself weighed a kilo, or that it is a scale that weighs things one kilo or less. For there are scales, and then there are scales.
Tack så mycket. We can stick to English for our discussions of theoretical physics just to avoid and confusion ;)
A very big one. en skala is like 'a scale from 1 to 5' and en våg is a device you can weigh things on.
Kilogram is also an accepted term in swedish, correct? Otherwise how would you differentiate between all the other SI units that have the kilo- prefix. But I assume that kilogram is automatically assumed when it is just kilo by itself.

Would it be possible to use the word "balance" in this case, or is my French passing tricks on me?
I think only french people weigh things with a "balance".
"The balance" only means "l'équilibre" in english
But doesn't that mean a balance scale, a specific type of scale rather than the full range of scales?
