It depends on the unit and the object measured.

In general, following are the tools for basic units.

1) Length - ruler, tape measure, vernier caliper, micrometer

2) Flow - orifice, flow meter

3) Angle - Clinometer, Protractor

4) Lab - Buretete, Pippette, test tube

5) Area - Planimeter

6) Grain size - mesh, sieve no.
