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.

That was interesting...but I have a question ( as you do ), wouldn't those ruddy big weights be subject to things like corrosion? And what if any moisture had condensed onto them while a test was going other words shouldn't they be encased in something to prevent that?

The up loader of this video isn't interested in World's Heaviest Weight, she's more interested on Derek Muller:P

Indeed, in engineering, the ability to compare something to a known standard is critical, otherwise how do you know the data you are generating in the test, is real or accurate?
