Anemometers are wind speed instruments used by meteorologists.
Depth finder. Depth finder, also called echo sounder, device used on ships to determine the depth of water by measuring the time it takes a sound (sonic pulse) produced just below the water surface to return, or echo, from the bottom of the body of water.
The jug's scale is in metric units (litres and millilitres) and imperial units (pints and fluid ounces). You can use the scale on this kettle to measure amount of water you want to boil. It has a capacity of 1.7 litres. You can use a bucket to measure large amounts of liquid.
Speed is the rate at which an object's position changes, measured in meters per second. The equation for speed is simple: distance divided by time. You take the distance traveled (for example 3 meters), and divide it by the time (three seconds) to get the speed (one meter per second).
When the engine turns over, the driveshaft turns to make the wheels spin round. The speedometer cable, powered by the driveshaft, turns as well. The cable spins a magnet around at the same speed inside the speed cup. The magnet rotates continually in the same direction (in this case, counter-clockwise).
If you were measuring out a volume of a liquid, did you use a beaker or a graduated cylinder? Look at the two figures above; if you were required to measure out 65 mL, what instrument would you most likely want to use? The graduated cylinder has graduations every 10 mL and then further graduations every 5 mL.
Density is the mass of an object divided by its volume. Density often has units of grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm3). Remember, grams is a mass and cubic centimeters is a volume (the same volume as 1 milliliter).

|spectrophotometer||intensity of light as a function of wavelength|
|speedometer||speed, velocity of a vehicle|
The speed of that wind can be measured using a tool called an anemometer. An anemometer looks like a weather vane, but instead of measuring which direction the wind is blowing with pointers, it has four cups so that it can more accurately measure wind speed.

|anemograph||instrument for measuring pressure and velocity of wind|

There is a meter stick that measures 1 meter. A metric tape measure can be used to measure multiple meters. If you wanted to measure long distances, you could use a kilometer odometer. A tool is designed to make measuring simpler.
An anemometer is a device used for measuring the speed of wind, and is also a common weather station instrument. The term is derived from the Greek word anemos, which means wind, and is used to describe any wind speed instrument used in meteorology.
An odometer or odograph is an instrument used for measuring the distance travelled by a vehicle, such as a bicycle or car. The device may be electronic, mechanical, or a combination of the two. The noun derives from the Ancient Greek words hodós ("path" or "gateway") and métron ("measure").
In the past, a common time measuring instrument was the sundial. Today, the usual measuring instruments for time are clocks and watches. For highly accurate measurement of time an atomic clock is used. Stop watches are also used to measure time in some sports.
The SI unit of time is the second. The SI unit of speed and velocity is the ratio of two — the meter per second. This unit is only rarely used outside scientific and academic circles. Most people on this planet measure speeds in kilometer per hour (km/h or sometimes kph).
An anemometer is a type of weather instrument that measures wind speed. Some of these instruments measure both wind speed and wind direction. Anemometers are common at weather stations. A cup anemometer is a type of instrument that uses three or four hemispherical cups mounted on horizontal arms on a vertical rod.
Metric ruler are generally used by students for measuring length in few centimeters or millimeters. Civil engineers use pacing tool (surveying tool) to measure the distance in a field, distance between plots & pacing can also be used for measuring the height of trees.
Pyrometer. Pyrometer, device for measuring relatively high temperatures, such as are encountered in furnaces. Most pyrometers work by measuring radiation from the body whose temperature is to be measured.
