# How do you read a micrometer caliber scale?

.000345 that is just simple math right of the point the places start 10th 100th 1000th and so on read away okay, but, how did you determine the .00345? In other words, hwo do you read the caliber? How did you egt those numbers?

### How do you read micrometers?

Difficult to explain without diagrams, but the micrometer relies on an accurate screw which advances the caliper a precise amount with each revolution. So you turn the screw until the object is lightly held, then read the axial scale and add on for the number of screw turns above the nearest scale reading. The most accurate type also have a vernier scale for very small distances. I suggest you look at Wikipedia 'Micrometer' which has…

### Measurement scale at one millionth of a meter?

A millionth of a meter is called a micrometer, often abbreviated as "micron". A millionth of a meter is called a micrometer, often abbreviated as "micron". A millionth of a meter is called a micrometer, often abbreviated as "micron". A millionth of a meter is called a micrometer, often abbreviated as "micron".

### How do you use the micrometer screw gauge?

Step 1: Retract the screw gauge slightly more the object you are measuring. 2: Slip the screw gauge into or around the object you are measuring, depending on the type of gauge you are using. 3: Advance the screw gauge just until the object will not slip. Do not over tighten. 4: Lock the gauge in place. Most micrometers will have either a thumb wheel or thumb lever locking mechanism on the handle. 5: Remove…

### How do you take readings from a micrometer screw gauge?

The first step is to find the zero error and hence the zero correction. Rotate the micrometer until the fixed and movable jaws contact each other - not too hard and not too soft but just right, you should geta feel for this. Rarely will a micrometer will read zero. You need to figure out the zero error. It may be positive or negative. If the zero error is positive then the zero correction is…

### How do you calculate least count of micrometer?

Hi, heres how you calculate least count of a micrometer. Use the given formula: Least Count (L. C) = Pitch/no. of divisions on micrometer barrel(thimble) where, Pitch = distance travelled by thimble on linear scale in one rotation. Hi, heres how you calculate least count of a micrometer. Use the given formula: Least Count (L. C) = Pitch/no. of divisions on micrometer barrel(thimble) where, Pitch = distance travelled by thimble on linear sacle in one…

### Disadvantages of micrometer?

I assume that you are enquiring about a 'micrometer', the precision measuring instrument, as opposed to a 'micrometre' (to use the British spelling), which is an SI unit for distance? I guess this sums up the problem with the US spelling! A micrometer has no particular disadvantages -it does exactly what it is designed to do. I suppose you could say that you have to be taught how to read a micrometer is a 'disadvantage'…

### How do you read a micrometer?

In order to read a micrometer, you will use the numbers on the thimble and on the sleeve. The numbers on the sleeve are broken down into 4 parts. Think of them as dollars with whole numbers and quarters. The numbers on the thimble can be represented as pennies, or ones. If the sleeve is at 9 3/4 and the thimble is at 4, the reading would be .979.

### How do you use micrometer screw gauge?

Micrometer screw-gauge is another instrument used for measuring accurately the diameter of a thin wire or the thickness of a sheet of metal. Pitch of the screw is the distance moved by the spindle per revolution.When the anvil and spindle end are brought in contact, the edge of the circular scale should be at the zero of the sleeve (linear scale) and the zero of the circular scale should be opposite to the datum line…
