Explanation: See the following explanation: "In the Shore scleroscope a steel indenter or ball is dropped from a height of 25 cm on to a flat surface of the material concerned. The hardness of the material is given by the height to which the indenter rebounds. The latter is expressed on a scale of 140 equal divisions which starts at zero on the face of the plate and ends at the point from which the indenter was released." from H.G. Jerrard & D.B. McNeill: A Dictionary of Scientific Units - pub. Chapman & Hall 1980 (almost certainly out of print!)
