Multiply it by the scale factor. For example 1:10 scale on length can be scaled up by multiplying the model length by 10. 2.3mm on the model will be 23mm in real life.

I've included a couple of links which should explain better the differences among the four levels of measurement: Nominal, Ordinal, Interval and Ratio. The nominal level can be thought of as the "name" level. I'll give you an example of nominal level of measurement. Perhaps you are collecting data on the types of cars that go through an intersection. You classify the vehicles passing by as trucks, cars and motorcycles and count how many of each pass by. Ordinal is the "order" level, where some natural order of data is possible. The difference between measurements has no physical meaning. An example of ordinal level of measurement. A hospital asks in the emergency room, for patients to describe their pain on a level of 1 to 10, which 10 being the most severe. As given in the first link, it is interesting that there is not complete agreement on this system of classification.

it deals with proportion. think of a map ... it has a "scale". it would be silly to try and create a life-size map of a city, because it would cover the whole city. instead, they might use a "scale" to say that each inch on the map represents 1 mile in real life. a model airplane might have a scale of 1:30 meaning that if every measurement on the model were multiplied by 30, then it would be the size of the real thing. if you scale something by a factor of 10, you make everything 10 times bigger (or further) a scale factor of 1/10 makes everything 10 times smaller.

Psycho acousticians say that 10 dB level difference double the felt loudness. well apex begs to differ!

"Kilometers" is a measurement scale (one I kilometer = 1000 meters) not a distance. To make it a distance you have to say how many kilometers you are asking about. For instance 10 kilometers is longer than 5 kilometers.

It is an ordinal scale.

It is measurement on an ordinal scale. Level 1 is less than level 2 which is less than level 3 and so on. But the difference between levels 1 and 2 is not related to the difference between levels 2 and 3, etc.

Many emotions can be measured on a 1-10 scale; in this case 10 would be the happiest you have ever felt or can possibly be. While it can be difficult to equate emotions into a measurement, this is the closest way possible to measure.

The Pain Scale in the US is a simple self-measurement "from 0 to 10" on which a patient ranks the pain they feel "in this moment".

The digital scale is inaccurate by 0.002 kg when weighing a 10 kg weight. This indicates a margin of error in the scale's measurement accuracy. It is important to consider such discrepancies when precision is crucial.

To calculate the least count of a clock, divide the smallest measurement unit of the clock by the total number of divisions on the scale. For example, if the smallest measurement unit is 0.1 seconds and there are 10 divisions on the scale, the least count would be 0.1 seconds divided by 10, which equals 0.01 seconds.

on a scale 1 to 10 i think im about...... a 3 or a 4 :-D

No, the Mohs hardness scale is not linear. It is a qualitative scale that ranks minerals based on their ability to scratch each other. The scale ranges from 1 (talc, very soft) to 10 (diamond, very hard), and each level represents a mineral that can scratch all minerals at a lower level.

Yes, a higher decibel level typically indicates a louder sound. Decibels are a unit of measurement for sound intensity, with a logarithmic scale where each 10 decibel increase represents a sound that is perceived as roughly twice as loud.
