Do you think that a definition of a physical quantity for which no direct method of
measurement is known or given has a physical meaning?

Dear student,
A physical quantity known as Raynold's number is a perfect example of this. It is the ratio of inertial forces to viscous forces and is a convenient parameter for predicting if a flow condition will be laminar or turbulent. But there is no direct method of its measurement.
