Your task is to decide which word does not belong in the following group.

accelerometer
rheometer
anemometer
seismometer
tachometer
speedometer


Answer

'Seismometer' is the odd word out, since it is used for measuring the direction, duration, and force of earthquakes and like concussions.

The other words are all instruments used to measure speed.
