Some map keys show elevation using two measurements what are those two measurements?
feet and inches
Indirect measurements are useful when it is not possible to measure the object for some reason. Scientists use indirect measurements when the measure the temperature of a flame my measuring the wavelength of the light being given off and calculating the temperature from a formula using that wavelength. The energy of electrons in atoms can only be measured using indirect means.
Biometrics is used as a replacement for passwords. For example, on your computer instead of typing in a login password, you simply scan in your fingerprint. Biometrics are about using any uniquely identifying physcial feature in a person to identify them.....such as the fingerprint. Answer In some contexts "Life Measurements" or the measurements of the body and its energies and motions.
Before the last millennium, most distance measurements were based on the lengths of body parts. The foot was the length of a foot, the inch was the width of the thumb at the cuticle, a mile was 1000 paces, and so on. The obvious problem is that those lengths vary, often greatly, from person to person. So when someone wrote, for example, ten feet, others who didn't know exactly how big the writer's feet were…
The second highest point east of the Mississippi is Mount Craig in North Carolina at 6,647ft. There is some controversy due to the 4ft difference in the measurements of the two mountains. The elevation of Mount Craig was last verified in 1993 by satellite; however, Clingman's Dome (located on the NC-TN border) was last measured in 1920 using the conventional method. The designation dispute cannot truly be resolved until Clingman's Dome is remeasured.
The answer will depend on the figure. For some plane figures there is a simple formula requiring only a few measurements. For more complicated figures, the formula may be more complicated or you may have to break the figure up into smaller units, measure their areas and sum these. For still more complicated areas you may have to use analogue techniques using the mass of uniform laminae, or approximations using grids. The answer will depend…
Tennessee has a higher elevation. Clingmans Dome in the Great Smokey Mountains of Tennessee has an elevation of 6,643 feet above sea level. Florida is relatively flat. The highest natural point of elevation in Florida is Britton Hill at 345 feet above sea level. Florida does have some skyscrapers that are higher than 345 feet.
France the highest elevation of the two, however, Spain has a higher average elevation. There is some room for discussion. While France has the tallest peak in European Union, much of France is lowland areas. In contrast, much of Spain is on a mid-level plateau. This means the on average a place in Spain will have higher elevation than a place in France.
The question is a bit confusing in the way it is asked. Typically you use the rod to gain elevation (numbers) and then calculate the elevation of a certain geographical point using a basic survey technique known as leveling. Leveling combines the calculations of a known elevation, known as a bench mark (BM), to the height of a survey level (height of instrument). The process of leveling is done in what is called loops. There…
Some people were living in old homes with weak structures and had unfavorable financial conditions, due to which they were greatly affected by hurricane Katrina. Since Katrina's worst effects in New Orleans were due to flooding, areas at a lower elevation were more severely impact. Many of those who suffered the worst were those too poor to evacuate.
The higher the elevation, the cooler the climate. In Hawaii, snow known as "Pineapple Powder" actually falls in some locations all winter long due to elevation. And, Mt. Kilimanjaro, which is located near the equator, always has snow! As the elevation increases, the amount of space between air particles increases causing less ability to transfer heat to the ground. As a result, temperatures are lower the higher you go.
