What instrument measures Newtons?
electrical Calibration Any kind of force-measuring device, such as . . . -- bathroom scale -- Force Meter -- balance beam -- spring fishing scale -- postage metering scale -- food scale a netometer A Newton meter! It measures forces. Friction, gravity.... "Newton" is a unit of force, just like "pound". A bathroom scale does a fine job of measuring them.
What is a newton meter for?
A newton metre is the SI unit for torque, symbol Nm, and is also technically equivalent to the joule. A newton meter is a term sometimes used to reference a spring scale, which uses a spring and Hooke's law to measure the force exerted in a linear direction. For purposes of avoiding confusion, using the term 'spring scale' is better.
What unit of measurement is used to measure gravity of a spring scale?

What does newton mean in 6th grade science?
"Newton" can refer to many things in science. The Newtonian Laws of Motion, the Newton measure of force, the Newton temperature scale, Newtonian Mechanics, or the man himself: Isaac Newton. The most probable answer is that a newton is a unit of force required to accelerate a mass of 1 kilogram by 1 meter per second squared. On the Earth, the is about the weight of something with mass of about 102 grams. (1/9.81 kilograms)

What is the difference between a linear and nonlinear graph?
linear: LINE example--- line non-linear: not a LINE example--- parabola The other possibility is a graph with a non-linear scale. First a linear scale will have each unit represent the same amount, regardless of where you are on the scale. A semilog scale, has a linear scale in the horizontal direction, and a logarithmic scale in the vertical direction. Exponential functions (such as ex & 10x), will graph as a straight line on this type of graph scale). A logarithmic or log-log scale, has logarithmic scales on both horizontal and vertical axis. Power functions (such as sqrt(x), x2 and x3), graph as a straight line on these scales. See Related Link
