Vernier Calipers | Physics XI

Verniers Calipers | Physics Practical XI NAME OF EXPERIMENT : TO USE A VERNIER CALIPERS TO DETERMINE THE VOLUME OF THE GIVEN TUBE. APPARATUS REQUIRED : (i) Vernier calipers  (ii) Given Tube THEORY :  The vernier calipers is a device used for measuring lengths in fractions of a millimeter with greater accuracy as compared to that of ordinary scale . It consists of main scale (MS) and vernier scale (VS) . The vernier scale (VS) slide over the main scale while main scale (MS) is fixed. The vernier constant (VC) of the smallest length that can be measured accurately . It is the difference between  the values … Continue reading Vernier Calipers | Physics XI
