Whoever for the purpose of cheating, uses an untrue balance, weight, or linear measure that differs from the correct unit or measure shall be punished with imprisonment for a term not exceeding one year or with a fine not exceeding QR5,000 or with both penalties.
k)]/f) = R(r, f), where and in what follows, R(r, f) is such a quantity that if [rho](f) < [infinity], then R(r, f) = O(1), as r [right arrow] [infinity], if [rho](f) = [infinity], then R(r, f) = O(log(rT(r, f))), as r [not member of] E and r [right arrow] [infinity], here and in what follows, E denotes a set of positive real numbers with finite linear measure.
except possibly for a set of r having finite linear measure, we say that a(z) is a small function with respect to f(z).
Types of linear measurement and units of linear measure were not problematic for this class.
This seemingly arbitrary length is four times a rod (or pole, or perch), a medieval linear measure derived from the amount of land a man could work in a day.
In such markets, linear measure data should be considered for use in both market and income approaches before considering a land value based appraisal method.
The callowest beginning science student could have pointed out to the author that it is linear measure alone - length - that determines the relative speeds at which pendulums oscillate, and thus their harmonic ratios; neither weight nor tension (however the author may imagine the latter could apply to a simple pendulum) has anything to do with it.

For example, the dimensions-of-an-aircraft problem, although tractable, demonstrates how to find linear measure on a grid, but the animation uses squares instead of a line segment to count the dimensions.
