A student uses a simple pendulum of exactly 1m length to determine g, the acceleration due to gravity. He uses a stop watch with the least count of 1 sec for this and records 40 seconds for 20 oscillations. For this observation, which of the following statement(s) is (are) true?
As the length of the string of simple pendulum is exactly l m (given), therefore the error in length Δl = 0.
Further the possibility of error in measuring time is 1s in 40s.
Using the expression 2d sin θ = λ, one calculates the values of d by measuring the corresponding angles q in the range θ to 90°. The wavelength λ is exactly known and the error in θ is constant for all values of θ. As θ increases from 0°
on dividing (i) and (ii) we get
As θ increases from 0° to 90°, cot θ decreases and therefore decreases option (d) is correct
This value of decreases as θ increases from 0° to 90°

Consider a Vernier callipers in which each 1 cm on the main scale is divided into 8 equal divisions and a screw gauge with 100 divisions on its circular scale. In the Vernier callipers, 5 divisions of the Vernier scale coincide with 4 divisions on the main scale and in the screw gauge, one complete rotation of the circular scale moves it by two divisions on the linear scale. Then :
1 MSD = 1cm/8 = 0.125cm
5 VSD = 4MSD
∴ 1 VSD = 0.1cm
L.C = 1MSD – 1VSD
= 0.125cm – 0.1cm
Screw gauge One complete revolution = 2M.S.D
If the pitch of screw gauge is twice the L.C of vernier callipers then pitch = 2 × 0.025 = 0.05cm.

(b) is a correct option Now if the least count of the linear scale of the screw gauge is twice the least count of venier callipers then.
L.C of linear scale of screw gauge = 2 × 0.025 = 0.05cm.
Then pitch = 2 × 0.05 = 0.1cm.
Then L.C of screw gauge = 0.1/100 cm = 0.001cm = 0.01mm.
