An instrument for ascertaining the specific gravity of bodies.
A geophysical device that has been particularly useful in finding salt domes. Actually, it is a weight on a spring. The spring gets longer in high-gravity areas and shorter in areas of gravity-minus. Magnetism helps the oil geologist understand its measurements
High precision instrument to measure minute variations in the Earth's gravitational attraction that exist as a result of density variations in the underlying rock formations
An instrument for determining the centre of gravity of a body.
a measuring instrument for determining the specific gravity of a liquid or solid
a measuring instrument for measuring variations in the gravitational field of the earth
an instrument used for determining the specific gravity of bodies, solid or liquid
1. A device used to measure specific gravity, for example liquids. 2. Instrument that measures the gravitation pull of the earth at different places.
A gravimeter is a device designed to measure the local gravitational field. Also sometimes called a gravitometer, a gravimeter is a type of accelerometer.
