Q9. A chord between two successive station is called ___________:
(a) Normal chord
(b) Successive chord
(c) None of the above
Q10. In plane tabling, the instrument used to measure horizontal and vertical distance directly, is known as ……………..
(a) Plane alidade
(b) Telescopic alidade
Sol. when the curve is to be set out over a rough ground. Theodolite method & tacheometric method is used.
Sol. Direct vernier – division which are slightly shorter than main scale. Reading increases in the direction of the main scale.
→ n division of vernier is equal to (n-1) division of main scale.
Retrograde vernier – Division which are slightly longer than main scale. Reading increases in a direction opposite to main scale. n division of vernier (n+1) division of main scale.
Sol. sensitiveness of level tube is designated by radius of level tube.
Sol. in leveling operation start with a back site & end with Fore sight.
Sol. the mean sea level is adopted by survey of India is located at Mumbai, but earlier the reference of mean sea level (M.S.L) was located in Karachi (Pakistan).
Sol. contour line joins all the points whose elevation is same on the earth surface.
Sol. direct method of contouring is the most accurate method. It is suitable for large scale maps when ground surface is regular.
Sol. fly levelling is used for reconnaissance of the area. Purpose of this levelling for determination of approximate elevation of points.
Sol. Chord between two successive station is called normal chord.
Sol. In plane tabling “Telescope alidade” used to measure horizontal & vertical distance directly.
