Fractional masses are weights used in physics experiments to achieve precise measurements of mass or weight. They are typically small metal discs or cylinders, and come in a range of sizes and shapes, with each size corresponding to a specific fraction of a larger unit of mass.

For example, a set of fractional masses may include discs that weigh 0.1 grams, 0.2 grams, 0.5 grams, and 1 gram, which can be combined to achieve a desired weight or mass with greater precision than using larger whole-number masses alone.

Fractional masses are commonly used in physics experiments that require precise measurements, such as in determining the mass of small objects or in calibrating instruments such as balances or scales. They are also used in educational settings to teach students about weight, mass, and measurement.

Fractional masses may be made of materials such as brass, steel, or aluminum, and may be color-coded or marked with their weight for easy identification. They are often used in combination with other masses, such as those in a slotted masses set or knobed masses set, to achieve a specific weight or mass.
