Frequently Asked Questions...

On a vernier caliper, how do I know when to use the scale measurement on the outside or the inside?

The vernier caliper at school has a scale starting from 0 to 1 on the outside and the inside part of the caliper. How do I know which one to use cause obviously using different scales will give you different results.


Answer:

I believe you're talking about the main scale and the vernier scale.

A over view of how to read it would be to measure the part.
Read the large center main scale. On a common inch vernier
The scale division are 0.025 or 0.05 depending on the caliper
I will work in .05 division as i believe its more common

Say you have a pipe that is 1.242 inches
On a .05 it would look like a little less than 1.250

We will call it 1.2
Now if we use the other small scale on the slide we can get more accurate.
Looking at the small scale you would look for the line that lines up the most with both scales. In this case it would be line number 42

so 1.2+0.042= 1.242

25 devision caliper work the same way.
would have looked like 1.225+ line17 or (.017)

check youtube for videos if you still dont understand.

At that point we would call it
