The effects of weight levels and gloves on the ability to discriminate weight difference
A study shows that the use of gloves affects the discriminating weight differences (DWD) ability to a very small extent. The DWD ability is evaluated by using six different types of gloves used in the industry. Four different weight levels such as 8.2, 3, 1.5 and 0.25 kilograms is taken into account. The human ability is psychophysically measured in terms of difference limen (DL). Findings show that higher the weight level, lower is the DL. A quantitative relation between weight level and DWD is derived.
