Would it be right to assume that Kipimo refers to any tool used to measure something? A ruler, a water gauge, litmus paper, etc. And then, Kupimo would be 'to measure' something? My dictionary doesn't shed light on this.
Kipimo can also be the amount measured. Kibiblia: "Kwa kuwa kile kipimo mpimiacho, ndicho mtakachopimiwa, na ..." So what is this sentence supposed to mean? Is the person asking for an instrument to measure something, or a quantity of something that has already been measured out, e.g. 1 gram of sodium chloride? Or the result (some measured quantity) of an experiment??
