How to use "Measuring rod" in context?
A measuring rod is a simple device used to measure distances between objects. The most common type of measuring rod is a plank of wood or alloy with a calibrated lengthwise groove. The user sets the object to be measured in the groove, nudges the object to the indicated position, and read the measure from the rod.
