What is the highest elevation in Austria?
"Elevation" is how high something is. It can be measured from ground level or sea level. Natural elevations like the elevation of an airport of the elevation of a mountain peak are given in relation to sea level. The highest elevation in Austria is a peak named Grosslockner.

Is bottom of pipe and invert elevation the same?
Not quite. The invert elevation of a pipe is measured at the flow line which is the bottom inside of the pipe. The bottom of pipe elevation should be the bottom outside of the pipe. The difference betwen the two measurements is the thickness of the pipe wall. ...

What tells exactly where a place is located on earth?
Latitude, Longitude, and Elevation. These values can be measured using a variety of different instruments and techniques. ...

Why do some stars change elevation more than others?
You might mean distance. Stars are not measured in elevation. Stars form apart from each other, that's why the distance to a star compared to another will never be the same. ...

What is the obvert elevation of a manhole?
The obvert elevation of a pipe is the elevation of the inner top surface of the pipe (as opposed to "invert" which is the inner bottom surface of the pipe). Invert (and obvert) is usually used in reference to pipe and not manholes, since the invert elevation is where the water flow calculations begin. Based on this interpretation, the obvert (at a manhole) can be measured as the distance from the manhole rim to the inside top of the pipe(s). ...

Where on the earths surface is your weight at its maximum?
At it's lowest elevation so the bottom of the grand canyon. But it would not be noticeable. Even if you measured your weight at the bottom of the grand canyon, then measured it at the top of mount everest. You would notice a very insignificant difference. ...

Is gravity the same at sea level as it is at high elevation?
In my experience in every-day life, it is. The gravitational difference is so slight that we cannot feel it, though I believe it can be measured. ...
