Longboard Wheels

What does "a" stands for in relation to the longboard / skateboard wheels?

I buy a longboard, and I have to choose between 78A and 84A wheels. What does a stand for and what effect it has on the performance of the board? Thanks in advance.

It is the scale used to measure the hardness of wheel (hardness). The higher the number, the harder the wheel.
