#### (Greek: measure)

2. A meter that measures magnetic flux by the current it generates in a coil.

2. An instrument that measures a small electric current by measuring the mechanical motion derived from electromagnetic or electrodynamic forces produced by the current.

Galvanometers can be used directly as ammeters, and are the core element of many ohmmeters and voltmeters.

**adjective**) (not comparable)

*Geochronometric*research involves the assessments of geologic time by scrutinizing isotopic radioactive decay.

*Geochronometry*uses faultless calculations of geologic time, as through isotopic-radioactive decay or radioactive elements or minerals.

**adjective**), more geometrical, most geometrical

*geometrical*shapes, like triangle-shaped ears and a body which had an oval shape.

*Geometrical* is often used in a limited or strictly technical sense, as opposed to mechanical, therefore a construction or solution is *geometrical* which can be made by rulers and compasses, that is by means of right lines and circles.

**adverb**), more geometrically, most geometrically

*geometrically*interesting.

2. Pertaining to how geometry is put into praceice: The vines on the trellis grew quite

*geometrically*up the side of the house.

3. Concerning how the rules or laws of geometry are applied: The students in class were very busy with calculating

*geometrically*the amount of space inside a given object.

*Geometry*is a subject taught in school which is concerned with the features and relationships of points, lines, angles, curves, surfaces, and solids.

2. In nuclear medicine, any of the various arrangements between a radioactive source and a detector that affects the accuracy of counting or measurement:

*Counting geometry*is a branch of algebraic geometry which deals with assessing the number of clarifications to geometric problems.

*Geothermometry*includes the direct or indirect measurement or approximation of the temperatures at which geologic processes take place or have taken place.

*Geothermometry* is the science of the Earth's heat and temperatures, and their effects on geologic processes.

*Geothermometry* pertains to the investigation of the Earth's heat and subsurface temperatures.

In geology class, Mary learned that *geothermometry* was important for determining a mineral or aggregate of minerals whose presence defined the temperature range of limits within which the minerals were formed, also known as a *geologic thermometer*.

*globulimeter*uses a process of studying the differences of tint obtained by mixing a sample of the blood with a sodium carbonate solution.
