(Greek: measure)

ventometer
A tool for making micrometer adjustments to the sight of a rifle so as to make modifications in windage (horizontal adjustment that moves the barrel to adjust for left to right sighting) and elevation (vertical adjustment) by turning the ventometer to the adjustments necessary for greater accuracy when shooting at a target.
viameter
viatometer
vibromasseur, vibrometer, vibrophone
An instrument once used in the treatment of chronic middle-ear disease and its local sequlae.

Vibrations were induced to dispel mucoid secretion and break down adhesions.

vibrometer
A device used to measure the vibratory sensation threshold. It is particularly useful in judging the progression or remission of peripheral neuropathy.
vinometer (s) (noun), vinometers (pl)
viscometer
viscosimeter, viscosimetric; viscometer, viscometric
An apparatus for determining the viscosity of a fluid; in medicine, usually of the blood.
vitaminization
1. The feeding of vitamins to make an individual vigorous or to purportedly prevent or cure a disease.
2. A process of taking or giving vitamins.
voltmeter
1. An instrument used to measure differences of electric potential, commonly called voltage, in volts or units that are multiples or fractions of volts.
2. A tool that measures electrical voltage; for example, the potential difference between two points.
3. A device; such as, a galvanometer, that measures in volts the differences in potential between different points of an electrical circuit.
3. A device that measures voltages of either direct or alternating electric current on a scale usually graduated in volts; such as, millivolts or kilovolts.

The typical commercial or laboratory standard voltmeter currently in use probably employs an electromechanical mechanism in which current flowing through turns of wire is translated into the reading of the voltage.

Another type of voltmeter includes uses electrostatic fores and is the only voltmeter to measure voltage directly instead of by the effect of current.

volumetry
yottameter (Ym)
A metric unit of distance equal to 1024 meters or 1021 kilometers. One yottameter equals 32.408 megaparsecs (Mpc) or 105.7 million light years.

It is said that we probably do not need a longer distance unit term than the "yottameter", because the radius of the observable universe is not more than about 200 yottameters.

zettameter (Zm)
One zettameter is said to be approximately the radius of the Milky Way galaxy.
zoometry, zoometrics
1. The application of statistical methods to the study of animals.
2. The branch of zoology that studies the sizes and proportions of animals.
3. The measurement and comparison of the sizes of animals and their parts.
zymometer (s) (noun), zymometers (pl)
An instrument or device for measuring the degree of fermentation.
