What is measured on Fujita scale
The Fujita Scale (F-scale) or Fujita Pearson Scale is the scale for rating Tornado intensity.
measured on the Beaufort scale?
The Beaufort scale is a scale of wind velocity ranging from 0 (calm) to 12 (hurricane). The scale was devised in 1805 as a means of describing the effect of different wind velocities on ships at sea. It is named after an admiral in the British navy, Sir Francis Beaufort (1774-1857).
does a Barometer measure?

Definition a Barrel Holds How Many Gallons of Crude Oil?
A barrel of crude oil holds 42 gallons of oil. Originally there were 40 gallons to a barrel. However, that was changed in the mid-19th century to give a little extra so consumers wouldn't feel "cheated." By 1872, the standard oil barrel was firmly established as 42 US gallons.
Ohms the measurement of?
The ohm is the standard unit of electrical resistance, named after German physicist Georg Simon Ohm. It is formally defined to be the electrical resistance between two points of a conductor when a constant potential difference applied between these points produces in this conductor a current of one ampere. The resistance in ohms is numerically equal to the magnitude of the potential difference.
