This may be a silly question. In the sentence 'X was measured with a galvanometer', does the use of the word 'with' instead of 'using' convey the meaning that X was measured along with a galvanometer?
Which of course does not make sense, but to be correct should we not say 'X was measured using a galvanometer'? Or am I wrong and both usages are acceptable in this context? The use of 'with' instead of 'using is very common, as you can see. Which is why I feel this might be a silly question and that I might be nitpicking.
Thanks in advance.
