A screw gauge with a pitch of 0.5 mm and a circular scale with 50 divisions is used to measure the thickness of a thin sheet of Aluminium. Before starting the measurement, it is found that when the two jaws of the screw gauge are brought in contact, the 45th division coincides with the main scale line and that the zero of the main scale is barely visible. What is the thickness of the sheet if the main scale reading is 0.5 mm and the 25th division coincides with the main scale line?
0.75 mm
0.80 mm
0.70 mm
0.70 mm
A student measured the length of a rod and wrote it as 3.50 cm. Which instrument did he use to measure it?

A vernier calliper where the 10 divisions in vernier scale match with 9 division in the main scale and main scale have 10 divisions in 1 cm.
A screw gauge having 100 divisions in the circular scale and pitch as 1 mm.
A screw gauge having 100 divisions in the circular scale and pitch as 1 mm.
Let [ε_{0}] denote the dimensional formula of the permittivity of vacuum. If M = mass, L = length, T = time and A = electric current, then
[ε_{0}] = [M^{-1}L^{-3}T^{2}A]
[ε_{0}] = [M^{-1}L^{-3}T^{4}A^{2}]
[ε_{0}] =[M^{-2}L^{2}T^{-1}A^{-2}]
[ε_{0}] =[M^{-2}L^{2}T^{-1}A^{-2}]
