What are uses of an anemometer?
The very first anemometer was invented by Leonardo de Vinci and it was a deflection anemometer. The second was invented by Dr.Thomas Romney Robinson it was a 4 cup anemometer. A three cup anemometer wasinvented in 1926 by Jhon Patterson and later improved by Derek Weston in 1991.The pressure anemometer was invented in 1996 on August 5th by William Henry Dines.
An anemometer is used for weather forecasting by meterologists . Aeroplane pilots and sailors need to know the velocity of wind . Therefore they use anemometers to fullfilltis need for wind speed an anemometer is used to measure wind speed An Anemometer is a device for measuring wind speed. They are common in Weather Stations.
That measures wind speed. A meteorologist studies weather, and would use one to check on winds. They are also used by people that measure ventilation in buildings, mine shafts and like areas. These could be environmental scientists or ventilation mechanics. As a hobby, I am a long range rifle shooter, and use an anemometer to measure crosswinds at the firing line.
