Question: What’s the difference between an instrument and an implement?

Best Answer – Chosen by Asker

An instrument implies something more delicate or technical than an implement, or alternatively something used for measuring. Eg. dentist’s tools could be instruments, so are for example the instruments in a plane’s cockpit, whereas something like a spade or a rake would be an implement. Also, as abhi pointed out, ‘implement’ can be used as a verb while ‘instrument’ cannot.That’s the way I’ve always interpreted it anyway, I don’t think there are any hard and fast rules.
