Fundamental concepts of measurement

Metrology or the science of measurement is a discipline that plays an important role in sustaining modern societies. It deals not only with the measurements that we make in day-to-day living, e.g. at the shop or the petrol station, but also in industry, science and technology. The technological advancement of the present-day world would not have been possible if not for the contribution made by metrologists all over the world to maintain accurate measurement systems.
