Mass choice is of primary significance for technological know-how, expertise and economics. Technical measuring structures diversity from ultramicro balances to weighing machines for freight trains; large items diversity from subatomic debris to galaxies. finished and topical, this reference paintings - edited through scientists of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, Germany - covers the total box of mass selection. ranging from actual foundations, it describes nearly all dimension thoughts intimately and provides a radical evaluation over clinical experiments on the topic of the decision of mass. experiences on modern difficulties, equivalent to a brand new definition of the kilogram, ancient tours and an remarkable checklist of references make this booklet an absolute needs to for everybody facing questions with regards to mass decision in basic examine, technical software, calibration carrier, and standardization, and in addition for academics and historians.

As the focal point of Roman rule in the provinces, every legion received copies of the Exagia, and in turn, from the legions the cohorts received utility standards with which the measuring implements of the traders and artisans were compared. 1] The basic units of the Roman system of measurement were the Libra and the Uncia, which were used both as units of weight and of volume. As hollow measures, the Libra and the Uncia were fixed and invariable. The values of the Libra and the Uncia weights were determined by the density of the substance (grain, oil or wine) that filled a Libra or an Uncia measure.
