Can the magnetic scale be replaced by a single magnet?

Yes and no. Theoretically, it is possible to detect with a magnet whether an object has a dia- or paramagnetism. However, the magnetic forces of conventional magnets are often so low that they cannot be detected with the human eye. Therefore, a very strong magnet is needed for a measurement. We recommend magnetic scales that can measure down to hundredths of a gram. This enables the detection of very fine differences and the achievement of clear results.
