anthropometer (s) (noun)
, anthropometers (pl)
A complex measuring stick used to calculate the dimensions of the human body.
anthropometry (s) (noun)
, anthropometries (pl)
1. The use of various techniques for taking measurements of the human body, employed in the study of human growth and variations: The use of anthropometry involves the measuring of the human body as to height, weight, and size of component parts, including skinfold thickness in order to study and to compare their relative proportions under normal and abnormal conditions.
2. The scientific study of human anatomical and physiological measurements for the purpose of analysis, comparison, and classification.
Analytical procedures; such as, oven drying, distillation, or Karl Fischer titration, used to measure the quantity of water present in materials.
A measured amount of a solution of unknown concentration is added to a known volume of a second solution until the reaction between them is complete; the concentration of the unknown solution (the titer) can them be calculated.
A Karl Flischer technique is the titration of a sample with a solution of iodine, pyridine, methanol, and sulfur dioxide which are used to determine trace quantities of water in a sample. The end point is indicated by yellowish color change.
archaeometry, archeometry (s) (noun) (no pl)
The implementation of scientific methods and techniques to archaeology: Archaeometry is the large field of work that entails the physical and/or chemical analyses (measurement) of archaeological substances, their constituents, ages, residues, etc.
A hydrometer; a meter used to determine a fluid's specific gravity.
The determination of a fluid's specific gravity by using a hydrometer (a meter used to determine a fluid's specific gravity).
The determination of a fluid's specific gravity by using an areometer or hydrometer.
arthrometry (s) (noun)
, arthrometries (pl)
The measurement of the distances or freedom of movements in all directions of a joint: Carol, the occupational therapist, measured the arthrometry in Jason's wrist regularly during his therapy sessions after he broke it and needed to restore the range of motions.
An instrument for comparing the relative amount of the light of stars.
The precise measurement of motions and positions of celestial bodies.
astronomical camera, astrophysical camera
A camera designed to record astronomical phenomena; such as, stars, nebulae, galaxies, or planets, and the spectra of such phenomena.
1. A photometer (light meter) for measuring the brightness of stars.
2. The measurement of the intensity of light of celestial objects.
