measurement which can only be determined by applying theories or principles in conjunction with any customary measuring device(s), such as a ruler, scale, meter (see also derived measurement)
A process where the measurement of some entity is not obtained by the direct reading of a measuring tool, or by counting of units superimposed alongside or on that entity. For example if the length and width of a rectangle are multiplied to find the area of that rectangle, then the area is an indirect measurement.
a measurement of some other temperature from which one can infer the product temperature
A measurement which is found by using a formula or other strategy and not actually measuring something (e.g., finding the height of a tree without actually holding a ruler next to it).
a measurement determined without the direct application of measurement tools. For example finding a measure by the use of the Pythagorean theorem, by similarity, or through ratios or scale factors.
A way to measure a solid, liquid or gas using the measurement device, the substance being measured, and another substance or container. See â€œdisplacement of water
Methods for determining heights, distances, and other quantities that cannot be measured directly.
