The Science of Measurement: A Historical Survey

Copertina anteriore
Dover, 1974 - 736 pagine
Although the topic of measurement might seem to lend itself to a dry-as-dust treatment, this book is just the opposite: an engrossing, easy-to-read study that treats a multifaceted topic with wit, imagination and wide-ranging scholarship.

Metrology, the science of measurement, usually concerns itself with length, weight, volume, temperature and time, but in this comprehensive work the topic also encompasses nuclear radiation, thermal power, light, pressure, sound and many other areas.
