You are given a sphere of radius 2 cm.If you are asked to select a best suited spring balance to determine its weight, then what should be the range and least count of the spring balance?(the sphere is made of an alloy of density 7x103  kg/m3).

We can take the range of the weight around 0-250 gwt. So if we consider a balance spring balance with this range its least count will be 2.5 gwt
