What object can you measure in miles?
The traditional answer is probably something like dimensions of a city or agricultural field or aircraft runway. But ANY length can be expressed in miles. The thickness of a human hair (say 100 micrometers) is approximately 6x10^-8 miles.

The measurement of the force of gravity acting on an object is weight . The weight of an object (or the weight of an amount of matter) is the measure of the intensity of the force imposed on this object by local gravity. . A measure of the force of gravity would be the product of mass and the …acceleration. The unit of which gravity is measured is called a Newton, one newton is about the same measure of force as 3.6 ounces. . Weight Force is the product of mass (scalar) and acceleration (vector): F = ma. Weight is a special case of that formula, where you substitute the acceleration of gravity, g, for a. We can therefore write: W = mg. 1 For example, if an object has a mass of 10 slugs 2 , its weight near the surface of the Earth is 10 x 32.2 (ft/s 2 ) = 322 pounds (pound-force). If an object has a mass of 10 kilograms, its weight near the surface of the Earth is 10 x 9.8 (m/s 2 ) = 98 newtons. You can measure the force of gravity on an object (i.e., its weight) by putting it on a scale. . Strictly speaking, the Force due to gravity is always measured between two objects. The acceleration due to gravity ('a') in the above discussion is a special case of acceleration that occurs due to the force of gravity present at sea level on Planet Earth. We can calculate the gravitational force between any two objects using the following formula F g = G (m 1 x m 2 ) / r 2 Where: F g - is the force due to gravity G - is the universal gravitational constant m 1 - is the mass of the first object m 2 - is the mass of the second object r - is the distance between the centres of the two objects When using the SI units, G is 6.67 x 10 -11 N m 2 / Kg 2 . 1. Hypercritically we should say to substitute -g for a in the equation, because many physicists think of g as a negative quantity, inasmuch as it's a vector in the downwards direction; that is, it is directed toward the center of the Earth. When dealing with weight and the acceleration due to gravity, one must be careful to be consistent in assigning the signs. 2. Whenever possible, use the slug, not the pound-mass, in making calculations of mass. The whole pound-mass/pound-force thing is infuriatingly confusing for students. (And some teachers, too.). Answer: mass x 9.8 meters/second/second. mass x acceleration is force and acceleration due to gravity is 9.8m/s/s. If you take a cannonball weighing 20lb and one 30lb, they would fall at the same rate but one has more force or energy in its motion.. Additionally, the force of gravity at earth's surface measured upon the scale must be added with that force of gravity which is effected upon us by the spin of the earth. (Honk! That's not a force of gravity. In fact, the spin causes no force at all.) For example, the force of gravity at the equator due to our velocity comes by law of Newton to 18.24 lb for a person of 165 scale weight. This then must be added to a total of 183.24 lb as the factual total of his or her gravitational pull. ( Full Answer )
Use the water displacement method. The object is equal to the amount of water it displaces. :)
The simplest answer is quite obviously mass, the heavier an object, the greater the pull of gravity. In fact in physics terminology, weight means the force by which you will be attracted towards the center of the earth. Also Newton's Law of universal gravitation states that the pull of gravity equal… the product of the masses of the two bodies involved divided by the square of the distance by which they are apart.

Weigh the object using a balance scale. To find its volume, fill a beaker halfway with water, drop theobject inside, and see how much the water rises. the volume of theobject will equal the volume of the water displaced. Divide the mass by the volume of the object which equals density.
The strength of the mutual forces of gravity that attract two objects toward each other is called the "weight" of each object in the presence of the other one. The strength of the mutual gravitational forces that attract you and the earth toward each other is called your weight on the earth. …Nobody cares about the earth's weight on you, but it's exactly the same number.

Typically, that would be anything that has a mass less than a kilogram. Roughly speaking, this would be objects smaller than your fist.
Below is a method you can use when measuring relatively small objects. Firstly, you can pour a known amount of water into a measuring cylinder. Next place the object into the water and ensure that it is completely submerged. Note the increase in the height of the water and its coresponding volume… marking. The increase in volume from the original volume of water is the volume of the object. You can use a displacement can instead of a measuring cylinder to make you result more accurate. ( Full Answer )
What do you want to measure - mass, weight, volume, density. There's no answer for "measure" without indicating what is to be measured.
water displacement you fill a graduated cylinder with enought water to cover the object then you tilt the cylinder and gently place the object in and see how much it goes up by that your volume
A change in the position of an object is called a displacement.Velocity is the measure of the rate of change of displacement withrespect to time.
The quantity of matter in an object is its mass. If you then know what the object is made from you can find out (approximately) how many atoms or molecules it has (measured in mol).
If its regular (geometric shaped) you could just measure it with a ruler using the formula for the shape in question. Irregular shaped objects can be submerged in water. The difference in the water level before and after submersion equals the volume of the object. length X width X height
In the US, miles is used to measure distances, such as the distancebetween two cities.
The temperature, in degrees in Fahrenheit or Celsius. In other words temperature is a physical property of a procedure that describes hot and cold.
1- unbiased measurement/analysis, in that you measure what is there and not impacted by your beliefs or philosophy of something...that is for subjective measurement/analysis. ==== 2- It is like the diffrent between the self-report questionnaire and pedometer. the questionnaire may become impacte…d by your beliefs because it is up to you how to answer the questions, maybe right and maybe wrong or maybe mixed. But the objective measurement, there is no way to be impacted by your beliefs, for example the pedometer will measure your steps exactly and there is no control from you on the pedometer. therefore objective measurement are more accurate and better than the other measurement. REMEMBER that objective measurement tools must be valid and reliable. ( Full Answer )
To increase the standard of living of the. Workingclass: The labourer is more prone to exploitation from thecapitalists if there is no standardized way of looking after theirwelfare. . To make the management feel the employees aresatisfied about the work and working conditions. . To reduce the l…abour problems in the orgnisaton: Thereare various problems affecting the workers, problems likeabsenteeism, turnover ratio, indebtedness, alcoholism, etc., whichmake the labourer further weak both physically and psychologically.Labour Welfare looks forward to helping the labourer to overcomethese problems. . To recognize human values Every person has his ownpersonality and needs to be recognized and developed. It is in thehands of the management to shape them and help them grow. Themanagement employs various methods to recognize each one's worth asan individual and as an asset to the organization. . Labour Welfare helps to foster a sense of responsibiJjty inthe industry: A person works both in a group and as anindividual. If the person is given responsibility he will actbetter or else he will be only a slave to the direction of thesuperiors and will not show any initiative to prove his worth, . Labour Welfare improves industrial relations and reducesindustrial disputes: Industrial dispute in any industry is asign of unsatisfied employees. Labour Welfare measures act as apreventive tool to most of these disputes. . To retain the employees There should be fixedpolicies : This calls in to prepare the policies, toconduct different training programmes, to have various motivationalschemes, to create interest in the job. The employees who feelsecure in an organisation, backed by fixed welfare policies haveless chance of looking for a job elsewhere. . To show up their positive mind in the work: Positivemind refers to the development of one's attitudes. This is tochange the negative attitude into positive. . To influence over other employees: This means LabourWelfare helps to change one's personality - presentation skills,communication skills, inter-personal relationships, etc. This isbest achieved when their morale is kept high by the differentwelfare schemes. . To increase the bargaining power of the employees: Bargaining means to systematically extract something from theopponent. The better bargaining power, the better influence on theopponent. Labour welfare measures like formation of workscommittee, worker's participation, Trade Union, etc., will surelyhelp them to have better bargaining power. ( Full Answer )
Use a balance, assuming this object is relatively small. If you wanted to measure the mass of the earth or moon, the procedure is somewhat different.
There are a number of answers. The word comes from the Latin 'millum', meaning one thousand, for one thousand paces (left foot, then right foot then left again). I don't know what the length of a standard Roman pace was, but in the Canadian Air Force (and Cadets), it was 5 feet. The Roman empire …was marked with mile posts for the benefit of their military. The statute (or English) mile is 5280 feet (1608 metres). This is easier to divide into quarters, thirds and eights than 5000 feet. The nautical mile is equivalent to one minute of arc at the equator, and is equivalent to 6076.12 feet, or 1852 metres (being hard to pace out a distance on the ocean). On the Canadian priaires, a prairie mile is the distance to that place you see 'over there', and is anywhere from 3 to 10 statute miles, depending on how clear your view and how flat the terrain between.

Things that are usually measured in kilometers include the distance between two cities or the height of a mountain.
Of course you can measure a football field in yards. ie- John ran 2 yards and the ball is at the 30 yard line.
the measureable properties of an object are -->. i) weight . ii) mass . iii) volume
Weight is measured with a set of scales or a balance, whether electronic or analogue.. The weight of an object is different to its mass. The weight is in relation to the gravitational pull so alters at different places in the universe (and earth slightly) so things weigh less on the moon but they h…ave the same mass. Mass is measured in grams etc whereas weight should be measured in Newtons. ( Full Answer )
the measuring mass of an object is a kilo The easiest way to measure an objects mass is to measure its weight and then assume a constant and global acceleration of gravity (which is a false assumption by the way) and convert weight to mass. The conversion is easy as weight and mass have a simple r…elationship. Weight = Mass * acceleration so Mass = Weight/acceleration Mass can be measured a number of different ways but the simplest is using a spring that has a constant tension with length (Hooke's Law). The distance that such a spring is stretched is a direct measurement of weight. ( Full Answer )
1 tsp = ~ 5 mL 1 drop = ~ 0.04 mL 1 tblsp = ~ 25 mL 1 cup = 250 mL 1 L = 1000 mL eye drop
The answer depends on how large the object is, what instrument is used to measure it and the skill level and attitude of the person doing the measurement.
any object can be measured in meters, centimeters, millimeters or any other unit of measurement to suit the circumstances or the system to which you are familiar
One easy way to do it ... with equipment you may already have around the house ... is to put it on a bathroom scale. The scale will display the magnitude of the mutual gravitational force of attraction between the earth and the object.
The unit of measurement would depend on what your are trying to measure. Smaller item would be measured in millimetre's, centimetre's (inches) then to the larger measurements of metres (feet, yards).
A flexable tape measure. these are also used for clothing measuring so you can find them at a fabric shop like Joans Fabric. Amazon.com will have some longer ones too. you also can measure certain parts of a complex shape and then add up the measures. Answerking123
The amount of time it takes to arrive at the destination over the distance traveled. Remember time is just a measurement of movement through space. Hence the reason it is called the space-time continuum. You should use this formula: Distance=Velocity/Time
That may refer to the mass, measured in kilogramms. It may also refer to something quite different: the number of moles.
Objects with small measurements that can be seen by naked eyes areused to be measured by mm .Like thickness of a book page. orthickness of a book.
An object is weighed based on the mass of the object in relationto the gravitational force excerted on the object.
Mechanism: Scales for small objects upto Laws of Motion for planetary objects. UK Base Units: Kilograms (Kg) or Tons (1000 Kg)
Speed is measured by dividing your time into distance to come up with your velocity. speed is measured the same way as velocity. If you have a varying speed with acceleration and deceleration this would need to be factored in as well.
meters per second squared (m/s^2) the gravitation acceleration, acquired by experimental values =-9.8m/s^2. negative since its falling
If the object is irregular the best way is to measure the volume of water it displaces when you immerse it completely in water.
An object can be measured in many ways. Length (or width or depth) can be compared against a standard such as a ruler. Weight can be compared against another object of known weight. Hardness can be compared against an object of known hardness, etc.
The mass is sometimes called the "amount of matter". Please note that this is a bit informal, not a very exact definition.
Kilometers are more likely to be used to measure the distance between two places, rather than the size of objects, since in our normal experience, objects are more likely to be measured by meters or centimeters rather than by kilometers. However, the diameter of planets and their moons, or of the su…n or stars, can be measured in kilometers. ( Full Answer )
The answer will depend on what characteristic of the object is being measured: its mass, volume, surface area, colour, density etc.
The measurement will be in terms of force or weight just as themeasurement of the force holding a person to the earth is given bytheir weight.
Depends on what you'd want to measure. Things like length and widthwould be the same, but finding out the mass of an object would be alittle bit trickier. And if you're out in the vacuum, fluids would behave strangely dueto the low pressure and the extreme temperatures.
No. Consider a grain of rice and a banana. If you threw these atsomeone so that they were moving at the same speed, theirvelocities would be the same. However, you would hardly feel the impact of the grain of rice butthe banana would hurt. The force of the impact is a measure of the relative iner…tia of thetwo objects. Where two objects are traveling at the same velocity, the inertia is greater in that object that has the greatest mass . ( Full Answer )
You can use integration - basically dividing the object into lots of small strips, or pieces of some other shapes.
A ruler (some say it should be called a rule!) is marked along an edge with (nowadays) centimetres and millimetres. Place the zero mark on the ruler at the start of the object to be measured, and read off the measurement at the other end of the object.
Kilometers can be converted intovarious unit of lengths .so, kms are used to measure objects anddistances of larger size .
I expect that the answer that you are required to give is the mass. However, the mass of any radioactive object is very definitely not an unchanging measure. And even with non-radioactive materials, some Grand Unified Theories (GUTs) of matter suggests that protons themselves might decay with a ha…lf life of over ten decillion years! While that is hugely greater than the 14.5 years that the universe has been in existence, it is not unchanging - if true. ( Full Answer )
Irregular objects can have their perimeters measured in a variety of different ways. Probably the easiest is to run a string along the edge of the object and then later lay the string flat and measure it. Another way is to measure in partial straight segments and approximate.
To measure an object's speed, you need to measure the time it takesto do a measured distance. For instance, if a car travelled at sixty miles per hour, ignoringtraffic and roadworks, etc, it would expect to cover a distance ofsixty miles in that hour.
