What is the unit of vernier scale reading of vernier caliper?

No unit for vernier scale coincidence. But as we multiply it by least count which has unit then we get vernier scale reading with the same unit. Of course main scale reading and vernier scale reading would have the same… Full Answer

The different parts of vernier caliper?

It has a main scale and a vernier scale. Vernier smaller in size just moves over main scale. Full Answer

What are the main scale and vernier scale readings?

Vernier scale consists of main scale and vernier scale. The first line or the zeroth line coinciding with the main scale reading is the main scale reading. The vernier line except zeroth line coinciding with any line on main scale… Full Answer

How do you take reading in travelling microscope by using the vernier scale reading from 0.6 to 1.0?

Their Vernier scale consists of two readings; the Vernier scale and the main scale. One can read that by the first line is the main scale and the next line is the Vernier reading. Full Answer

How calibration of vernier and micrometer is done?

callibration of vernier caliper. It is calibrated base on the type , if it is 49/50, the 10th division of vernier scale will correspond with 9th division of the vernier scale Full Answer

What are the disadvantages of using vernier caliper?

The vernier caliper is easy to use. However it is disadvantaged by the inaccuracy of its scale. The vernier scale has a finite limit of resolution! Full Answer

What are the characteristics of main scale and vernier scale?

Where on the vernier caliper would you read to obtain the main scale reading?

The main scale is before the zero line of the vernier scale. Full Answer

What are the different types of zero error associated with the vernier calipers?

It is said to be positive when vernier scale zero is to the right of main scale reading and when vernier scale zero is to the left of main scale then it is said to be negative zero error. Full Answer

What is vernier constant?

The difference between one main scale division and one vernier division is called vernier constant. this is the minimum length which can be measured accurately with the help of a vernier calipers. it is also called the least count of… Full Answer

How can you make your vernier callipers more sensitive or more accurate?

the instrument can be made more sensitive by making vernier constant less ie by incresing the no of division on vernier scale or by decreasing the value of main scale. Full Answer

How does the zero error occur in the vernier calipers?

It occurs when the '0' marking of the main scale is not in line with the '0' marking of the vernier scale when the jaws are fully closed. Full Answer
