    That's more like it.

    something (a pan) to hold the item being weighed.
    Something that gets changed when you put things in the pan. This could be:

    A beam bends
    A spring extends or compresses.
    A gas or liquid gets pressurised.... or many other ways.

    Something to measure the size of the change:

    A strain gauge (or more than one)
    Something that measures linear deflection
    Something that measures pressure.....

    Some electronics to process the measurement:

    Bridge amplifier
    LVDT (say) converter

    Something to turn the processed value into a useful form:

    An ADC
    A processor tochenge the ADC units to real- world units.

    Some way of viewing the results:

    An LCD or LED display
    A serial link to a host computer
    etc. etc.

    There. That should be enough to go on.

    Oh, and you'll need some means of calibrating it. stabdardised weights
    from somewhere.
