Two full turns of the circular scale of a screw gauge cover a distance of 1 mm on its main scale. The total number of divisions on the circular scale is 50. Further, it is found that the screw gauge has a zero error of – 0.03 mm. While measuring the diameter of a thin wire, a student notes the main scale reading of 3 mm and the number of circular scale divisions in line with the main scale as 35. The diameter of the wire is

  • Option 1)

    3.38 mm

  • Option 2)

    3.32 mm

  • Option 3)

    3.73 mm

  • Option 4)

    3.67 mm.

As we learnt in

To measure the diameter of small spherical cylindrical body using Vernier Callipers -

Vernier Constant

= 1 Main scale division - 1 V.S. Division 

V.C= 1 M.S.D - 1 V.S.D

M.S.D=  Main Scale Reading

V.S.D= Vernier Scale Reading

 

- wherein

Total observed reading = N+n \times V.C

N= Nth division 

Observations: 

1.    Vernier constant (least count) of the Vernier Callipers: 

                    1 M.S.D. = 1 mm

            10 vernier scale divisions = 9 main scale divisions

                i.e.     10 V.S.D. = 9 M.S.D.

    \therefore        1 V.S.D.  =\frac{9}{10} M.S.D.

                Vernier Constant (L.C.) = 1 M.S.D. - 1 V.S.D. = 1 M.S.D. -\frac{9}{10} M.S.D.

                            =\left(1-\frac{9}{10} \right )M.S.D.=\frac{1}{10}\times1M.S.D.

                            =\frac{1}{10}\times1mm=0.1mm=0.01cm

2.    Zero error: (i) ........ cm (ii) ............cm (iii) ..........cm 

        Mean Zero Error (e) = ............ cm 

        Mean Zero Correction (c) = - (Mean Zero Error)

                                                = .......... cm

    

 

 

 

 

 

 Diameter = M.S.R + C.S.R x LC + Z.E

3+35\times ( \frac{0.5}{50})+0.03 =3.38mm
