Last week’s question

Which instrument measures wind speed?

a. Altimeter
b. Anemometer
c. Barometer
d. Fanometer

The correct answer is B. An anemometer measures wind speed, and is a common weather station instrument. The term is derivesd from the Greek word anemos, meaning wind. An altimeter measures the altitude of an object above a fixed level. Meteorologists and scientists use a barometer to measure atmospheric pressure. A fanometer is not an actual scientific instrument.
