It is less than a micrometer but greater than a non vernier caliper or ruler.

My mooom and the advantage in meausurung with vernier caliper and the micro meter is grams mass length volume and all that measuring stuff

A meter stick caliper is very large and would make general measurements. A micrometer caliper is much smaller and can be used to make much smaller measurements.

Vernier calipers are used to measure length when quite accurate measurement is required, but not such accuracy as to require a micrometer.

A vernier caliper would be a good way, unless you need a more accurate measurement, in which case I might use a micrometer caliper.

micrometer is more occurate.

*Micrometer have a rotary handle and whereas vernier have a slider. *Micrometer is for measuring diameters while vernier is for measuring inside & outside diameter as well as depth. *Least Count of Vernier Caliper is 0.02mm *Least Count of Micrometer is 0.01mm

In case for micrometer, principle of pitch is used. Least count could be even micro meter But in vernier caliper, difference of main scale division and vernier scale division is the principle Least count could be 0.02 mm

micrometer conforms to abbe's principle because the graduations are located along the same axis as the measurement while vernier caliper does not because the graduations are not on the same axis as the measurement.

The most compelling reason to select the micrometer Screw over the Vernier caliper is the guarantee that when measuring a flexible surface, the same amount of pressure is applied between samples. The Vernier caliper has the ability to measure internal and externally, but if precision is required, the micrometer screw is the tool of choice.
