Allow me to answer this question like this: Measure this house. What units? Generally, the answer is no, since any measurement thus given would compose of all the articles of said measurement, and would therefore be practically meaningless.

What is an example of quantitative measurement?

data or information that is measured numerically rather than qualitatively.

How do you measure lathe speed?

lathe speed is numerically measured by cutting speed vdn/1000.

Is the size of the universe falsifiable?

Yes, the size of the universe is absolutely falsifiable because the universe has not been accurately measured. Once the universe is accurately measured, it will be much more difficult to falsify its size.

How old is bode's universe?

Bode's universe can not be measured. The reason the universe can not be measured is because it is made up of all the matter, intergalactic space, galaxies, stars and planets.

A qualitive observation?

A qualitive observation is an observation of a product of a reaction which cannot be measured numerically, e.g. colour, state of matter. A quantitive observation is an observation which can be measured, e.g. size, volume.

What is the distance between the opposite sides of the universe?

No one on earth knows. The universe hasn't been measured, and we may never reach the ends of the universe, if the universe ever ends.

What data cant be measured but divided into groups?

I suspect that the answer is meant to be qualitative data but that is not a proper answer. Information about the qualitative aspect of data (eg what colour is you hair) is still a measurement. It may not be numerical measurement, but the question states "can't be measured", not "can't be measured numerically".

How do distances between planets solar systems galaxies and the universe compare?

The distance between planets are measured in millions of kilometers while the distance between solar systems are measured in light years while the galxies and the universe are measured in AU (astronautical units)
