QUESTION: 13

A bench mark (BM) with reduced level (RL) = 155.305 m has been established at the floor of a room. It is required to find out the RL of the underside of the roof (R) of the room using spirit leveling. The back sight (BS) to the BM has been observed as 1.500 m whereas the foresight (FS) to R has been observed as 0.575 m (staff held inverted). The RL (m) of R will be 

Solution:

QUESTION: 14

The plan of a map was photocopied to a reduced size such that a line originally 100 mm, measures 90 mm. The original scale of the plan was 1 : 1000. The revised scale is

Solution:

original scale 1:1000

now 100

reduced as 90

so put 90/100 for 1

that is 0.9 for 1

new scale is 0.9 for 1000

0.9 :1000 or

9:10000

= 1/1111
