Measurements as a Science Rather Than an Art 710366

The idea of making a measurement with an energy conversion device called a transducer is presented. Types of transducers are discussed and their important characteristics are defined and discussed. Several examples are presented to illustrate how transducer characteristics and equations of operation are evaluated. Finally, the generalized measurement problem is presented and discussed in terms of obtaining valid data in order that the concept of making measurements can be treated as a science rather than as an art.
