Today I set up a new experiment using the old HP tablet and OHAUS usb scales. The setup was three scales connected to the tablet, which was running Jim Wagner's custom logging software, ScaleWatcher v3. A beaker filled nearly to the top, a wickless validator filled nearly to the top, and a validator with wick saturated and filled nearly to the top with water will have their masses logged every 10 minutes for a month or until the validators are dry. The wicked validator has a dry weight of 191 grams, while the wickless validator has a dry weight of 75 grams. The beaker and wicked validator are on 4000g scales and the wickless validator is on a 600g scale.
