Cath`e*tom"e*ter (?), n. [From Gr.
&?; vertical height + -meter.] An instrument for the
accurate measurement of small differences of height; esp. of the
differences in the height of the upper surfaces of two columns of
mercury or other fluid, or of the same column at different times.
It consists of a telescopic leveling apparatus (d), which
slides up or down a perpendicular metallic standard very finely
graduated (bb). The telescope is raised or depressed in
order to sight the objects or surfaces, and the differences in
vertical height are thus shown on the graduated standard.
[Written also kathetometer.]
