(b) Clockwise from the back station to the forward station
(c) Anticlockwise from the forward station to the back station
(d) Anticlockwise from the back station to the forward station
Q10. If a transition curve is introduced between a straight and a curve such that a super elevation of 15 cm is introduced over a curve and if the rate of super elevation is 1 IN 500, then the length (m) of the transition curve will be
Sol. In surveyor compass the graduated ring fixed at the box & moves with the box while the magnetic needle remain’s stationary along the north south line.
Sol. line of sight. The line passes through optical centre of objective & intersection of cross hair is called as line of sight.
Line of collimation – When line of sight become horizontal. It will be known as line of collimation
Axis of telescope – This is an imaginary line joining point’s of optical centre of eyepiece to the optical centre of objective glass.
Axis of bubble tube – This is an imaginary line which is tangential on longitudinal curve of bubble tube.
Sol. the telescope of a dumpy level is rigidly fixed to the leveling head.
Sol. differential leveling required more than one setting of the instrument .
for determine elevation difference between two points differential leveling adopted.
Sol. According to lehmans rule, the ‘fix’ of a plane table with three known points is good if the instrument station lies in the great triangle & is bad if the plane table station lies on the circumference of the circumscribing circle.
Sol. in plane table survey, the error due to centering should not exceed
Sol. in the fixed hair method the distance between the stadia hair is fixed.
Sol. while measuring horizontal angles. Theodolite should be turned clockwise from the back station to the forward station.
Sol. super elevation (e) = 15 cm.
Rate of super elevation = 1 in 500
Length of transition curve = 500 ×0.15
= 75 metre.
