The purpose of this book is to review the principles of those methods of measurement employed in industrial processing and manufacturing. Primary emphasis is given to the method rather than to the mechanism. Attention is paid, however, to important practical details. In most cases it has been deemed necessary to review the fundamentals of physics (mechanics, thermodynamics, and electricity) pertaining to the problems of measurement. This serves two purposes. First, it focuses attention on the fundamentals of engineering applications, and, second, it induces a more analytical and less empirical approach to the problems of measurement. The book is intended primarily for the undergraduate in engineering. With the exception of a few sections containing differential equations, it is assumed that the student is familiar with the elements of calculus, mechanics, thermodynamics, and fluid mechanics beyond. elementary courses in physics. The problems are mainly elementary. They may serve to suggest to the instructor other problems of .similar character.
