Why could you not use an elastic measuring tape to measure distance? What would be some of the problems you would meet in telling someone about a distance you measured with an elastic tape?

Answer :

Elastic tape gives incorrect measurement because the length of elastic tape varies and depends upon the force by which it is stretched. It would be difficult to tell someone about the extend by which tape was stretched while measuring the distance with elastic tape.
