Industrial Measures & Standards
Industrial measures constitute a wide array of concepts that cover standard sizes and measurements for objects used throughout industry for many purposes. Use Wolfram|Alpha to explore concepts such as diameter, temperature, voltage, area, volume and others used to define a set of standard measures, depending on the object's purpose.
