A spring scale measures weight. It is dependent on the gravity, and so one's weight in space, or on the moon would be different based on the spring scale. A balance measures mass, and since the standards in a balance are the same no matter what the gravity is, then the mass remains constant. … However, for all practical purposes, the gravity on earth is constant so the weight and mass of the objects would be the same.

The scale used to measure hurricanes is called the Saffir-SimpsonHurricane Wind Scale. This scale rates hurricanes from category oneto five based on wind speed.
You use the Mohs scale of hardness by scratching minerals withother minerals. The mineral that scratches the other one is theharder mineral.
There are a number of scales used to measure earthquakes depending on what is of interest. Scales which measure the amount of energy released by an earthquake are known as magnitude scales, these include the widely known Richter scale which is calculated based on the amplitude of seismic waves …as measured on a seismometer but can not be used for large earthquakes (those with magnitudes greater than 7.0) and the less well known moment magnitude scale whose value is calculated based on measurements of the length and amplitude of the fault slip and the stiffness of the ground. This scale is used for large earthquakes greater than magnitude 7.0. If you are interested in the severity of the ground shaking at a specific point, then you would use an intensity scale such as the Modified Mercalli scale or the European Macroseismic scale which score earthquakes based on witness reports of the perceived violence of the ground shaking, the degree of damage done to buildings and other structures and also on measured ground accelerations at a given location as recorded by seismometers.

A magnitude scale. Formerly the Richter magnitude scale was used,but this has now been replaced by the Moment magnitude scale.
The Richter scale measures the magnitude of an earthquake. Logarithmic scale is the other measurement which is what you use when talking about how much a measurement of an earthquake goes up by. There are also but here is just a few.
The Richter scale assigns a magnitude number to an earthquake based on the maximum amplitude of the seismic waves as recorded on a seismometer and the distance of the seismometer station from the epicentre of the earthquake.
The moment magnitude scale, the Richter scale (which can only be used for low and moderate magnitude earthquakes less than 6.9) and the modified mercalli intensity scale are used to measure earthquakes.
The Beaufort scale has been and still is used to describe wind conditions. The max on this scale is 12 (starting at 64 knots or 74 mph) which is described as 'hurricane'. However some countries now use an extended scale with numbers beyond 12 to cover varying strengths of hurricane. Hurricanes the…mselves are rated on the Saffir-Simpson scale with a category 1 hurricane beginning at the same point as 12 on the Beaufort scale. It goes up to a category 5, with winds of at least 137 knots or 157 mph. (MORE)

Scales used to measure weight include:. Spring scale - measures the increased length of a spring as it stretches . Balance scale - uses a horizontal lever to compare unknown weights to that of known weights
You can measure how unstable they are with reasonable accuracy by digging snow pits and evaluating the different layers of the snow, seeing whether there are any particular weaknesses. Therefore this enables some sort of prediction as to when an avalanche may occur (in a space of a month or so), but… they can not be completely accurately predicted. Also not everyone wants to dig snow pits in the steepest parts of the snow slopes and whats true for one location may not be true for another. Therefore it is difficult to measure avalanches. .

The oldest scale of measurement for earthquakes were in fact intensity rather than magnitude scales with the first being The Mercalli intensity scale . Intensity scales describe the earthquake in terms of the damage caused. Later, improved versions of this form of measurement were published in 1931… as the Mercalli-Wood-Neumann scale. The first widely accepted magnitude scale (magnitude being a description of the energy released by an earthquake) was developed by Charles Richter in 1935. This was known as the Richter magnitude scale (also known as the Local Magnitude Scale ), which categorises them in absolute terms based on calculating the logarithm of their amplitude and the distance of the seismometer station from the epicentre. The Richter scale was designed to measure the magnitude of moderate and small earthquakes. The scale has no theoretical upper or lower bounds, however in practical terms the lower bound is defined by the minimum sensitivity of seismometers and their ability to detect small earthquakes and the upper limit (effectively around a magnitude of 7.0) is due to the fact that earthquakes larger than this due to the wavelength of seismic waves produced by large earthquakes. In order to attempt to overcome this, Charles Richter along with his colleague Beno Gutenberg developed the surface and body wave magnitude scales. These produce results that are consistent with the original magnitude scale and extend it's utility up to earthquake with a magnitude of 8.0 For earthquakes larger than magnitude 7-8 a new scale was required and this was developed in the 1970s and is known as the Moment Magnitude Scale (MMS) which measures the earthquakes magnitude based on the length of the fault that slips, the amplitude of the fault movement and the elastic moduli of the rockmass around the fault zone. The modern scale retains the familiar logarithmic continuum of values with the original Richter (local) magnitude scale. (MORE)
The Modified Mercalli Intensity scale is used to measure the degree of ground shaking, damage and surface accelerations caused by an earthquake at a given point, the Richter Magnitude scale (can only be used for small and moderate magnitude earthquakes), and the Moment Magnitude scale are used …to measure the amount of energy released by an earthquake and are derived based on the amplitude of seismic waves and the size of fault displacement / rupture zone cross sectional area and rock mass elastic properties respectively.

The Mohs Scale of Hardness determines the hardness of minerals by scratching them with commonly found objects. The minerals are assigned a number which corresponds to their hardness; higher numbers indicate higher hardness.
The absolute magnitude of a quake is conventionally reported by numbers on the Moment magnitude scale (formerly Richter scale, magnitude 7 causing serious damage over large areas), whereas the felt magnitude is reported using the modified Mercalli intensity scale (intensity II-XII).
Absolute temperature and hence we won't mark degree as we write the temperature. At 4.2 K mercury would loose the resistivity totally and so it becomes super conductor.
The Fujita scale measures the strength of a tornado based on the severity of the damage it causes. The scale runs from F0 at the weakest to F5 at the strongest.

The Saffir-Simpson Scale is an estimate of the power of hurricanes. Their Categories are Category 1, Category 2, Category 3, Category 4, and Category 5. All of them are destructive, especially Category 3 through 5.
depends on what you are trying to measure, but if its something that is on the other side of the planet you would use kilometers, or miles but if it were something like a desk, you'll probably use inches
The Mohs scale of hardness is used to measure the hardness of minerals in relation to others
The rictor scale, though im not not too sure about my spelling on that one.
It could be used to measure capacity. For example, weigh an empty container. Then fill the container with water and weigh it again. Take the difference in weight. Divide by the density of water. This will give you the capacity of the container.
There are three scales for measuring tornado strength, all of which use damage to estimate wind speed. The first and most famous is the Fujita scale, developed in 1971. This scale rates tornadoes from F0 at the weakest to F5 at the strongest. Most countries that take the time to rate their tornad…oes use this scale. The next scale to be creates is the TORRO scale, developed in 1975 which runs from T0 at the weakest to T11 at the strongest. There are two TORRO categories for every Fujita category, for example a T0 or T1 tornado is equivalent to an F0 while a T10 or T11 is equivalent to an F5. This scale is used in only a few European nations. Finally there is the Enhanced Fujita scale developed in 2007.It runs from EF0 to EF5. This scale was derived from the Fujita scale and provides more accurate wind speed estimates than the original scale, particularly where the original wind estimates for F3 and stronger tornadoes were far too high. Currently this scale is only used in the United States, though Canada plans to adopt the scale in 2013. All U.S. tornadoes prior to February of 2007 and all Canadian tornadoes prior to 2013 retain their original Fujita ratings. (MORE)
Yes. It is called the Enhanced Fujita scale. By its parameters damage is used to estimate wind speed, which is in turn used to assign a rating ranging for EF0 for the weakest tornadoes to EF5 for the strongest.
Body analyzer scales are used to measure not just body fat percentage, but the amount of water, muscle, ect. in one's body. This is believed to give a more complete picture of one's fitness.
The Mohs scale is used to measure the relative hardness of a material. It is based on the ability of one material to scratch another.The scale start at the soft end with Talc, through to Diamond as the hardest.
The Beaufort scale is used to measure the strength of wind. It linearly relates to wind speed in knots. There are 17 levels of the Beaufort scale, ranging from 0 (< 1 knot, calm) to 8 (34 - 40 knots, fresh gale) to 12 (64 - 72 knots, hurricane) to 17 (107+ knots, hurricane).
Because that's what it's built to do, and spring scales are simplerand cheaper to build than balance scales.
