A student measured the length of a rod and wrote it as 3.50 cm. Which instrument did he use to measure it?

• A meter scale.

• 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.

B.

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.

If student measures 3.50 cm, it means that there is an uncertainty of order 0.01 cm
For vernier scale with 1 MSD = 1mm
and 9 MSD = 10 VSD
LC of vernier scale with 1 MSD - 1 VSD

What is the need of measurement?

To get the complete knowledge of any physical quantity, measurement is needed. Measurement of any physical quantity involves comparison with a certain basic, arbitrarily chosen, internationally accepted reference standard called unit. Knowledge without measurement is incomplete and unsatisfactory.
