The most elementary one is Litmus Paper. It measures red for acid and blue for alkali.

Then there is UNIVERSAL INDICATOR, a liquid, This will slowly change colour from red(very acidic (pH 1)) to green(neutrality) (pH 7) to indigo (Alkaline )PH14))

Theren there is a pH meter , which is an electronic probe put into the solution to read off the pH .

What is accuracy in measurement and instrumentation?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Accuracy in measurement and instrumentation refers to how close a measured value is to the true or known value. It is a measure of systematic error, which denotes how well the instrument or measurement device is calibrated and free from biases. The accuracy is usually expressed as a percentage of the measuring range or as a specified number of units.

What is meant by vernier callipers?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Vernier calipers are a type of measuring instrument used to measure the dimensions of an object with high accuracy. They consist of a main scale and a sliding vernier scale that allows for precise measurements by reading the aligned markings on both scales. Vernier calipers are commonly used in fields such as engineering, manufacturing, and scientific research.

What is a theodolite?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

A theodolite is a Surveyor's measuring instrument that began to take its present form in the 17th century. In the work, 'The Surveyor in Foure Books' by Aaron Rathborne (London, 1616) an elaborate drawing of a theodolite can be seen on the front piece. These were used as early surveying tools, and were extremely acurate. Thomas Jefferson used such an instrument during his time as a surveyor. Later versions are also known as "Dumpy Theodolite", while 20th century versions use extremely fine optics, or lasers. The tool in it's present,modern versions is indespensible as a surveying/mapping tool. Wala lang...Kervin to of BSCE 3-1 PUPSMB
Theodolites- pronounced as it is spelled, are surveying instruments of high precision and accuracy. They are a more sophisticated form of what is usually called a transit. The Theodolite is always operated from a tripod and has Base (circular) and Cylindrical levels on the instrument to keep it level. The name is thought to derive from the Greek- approximately ( The Eye of God). Modern engineering, building and bridge construction, etc, even mining, could not function without the theodolite and the more modern derivatives using electronic devices and GPS. ( progress in full swing, as with Cameras and electronic measurement of parameters, as with modern non-digital Nikons.) By the way Nikon makes theodolites. One of the best historically and by no means an obsolete instrument was/is the Wilde-Zeiss theodolite which reached its present form around l938. a common sight on Gotham building sites. Their uses are many!

A graduated cylinder has a constant diameter and a printed scale on its side that indicates volume inside the graduated cylinder for any given liquid level. A flask has none of these advantages.

How do you measure the Computer Screen?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

A monitor's size is the distance (usually measured in inches) from corner to corner, diagonally across the screen.

This applies to widescreen and normal/full screen monitors.

However the manufacturer's specified size might be slightly more than the actual 'viewable size' for a couple of reasons:

1. They tend to round-up. So what they might call a 24 inch monitor might actually only be 23.5 inches.

2. A CRT monitor's size traditionally includes the casing around the screen, for reasons dating back to the invention of the technology decades ago. This doesn't apply to lcd flat panel monitors.

See the related link(s) for a more indepth guide and a tool for getting an approximate measurement of a monitor screen size.

By Measuring the monitor diagonally this will give you the screen size.

The specific models of the laptops usually have uniform sizes of the screens. So, if you know the model number, you can very easily look up its screen size.

Why it is important that hand tools and measuring devices are wiped down and lubricated after use?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Taking care of your tools so they perform as intended and last a lifetime is important. A good tradesman will keep his/her tools clean and in excellant working condition. Good tools are expensive! Dirty, unkept tools are a reflection on the tradesman's quality of work and people do notice.
