A quantitative measure is a measurement of the quantity of something rather than its quality.

  • In the field of physics, the term quantitative refers to a measurable quantity or physical property that can be expressed numerically.
  • Quantitative analysis involves the use of mathematical and statistical methods to obtain precise measurements of physical phenomena and to analyse and interpret the resulting data.
  • Quantitative analysis is a fundamental part of the scientific method in physics, as it allows researchers to test hypotheses and make predictions based on empirical evidence.
  • The use of quantitative methods also enables physicists to develop mathematical models that can be used to describe and predict the behaviour of complex physical systems.
