Virtual Vernier Scale – Two hundredths Millimeter Simulator – 0.02 mm

Virtual vernier scale - simulator in millimeter resolution of two hundredths of millimeter

Virtual vernier scale in millimeter with fifty divisions

simulator and practice of reading and interpretation – resolution two hundredths of millimeter – 0.02 mm

The vernier scale is a technological device that increases the sensibility of a scale when subdivides its smaler division.

On this simulator the scale is 1:100, that means the graved numbers are the hundredth part of meter or the centimeter – bigger marks, that it was subdivided by ten -smaler marks, the millimeter. The vernier has fifty spaces between vertical marks, so, it divides by fifty the millimeter, the smaler division of the main scale, obtaining two hundredths of millimeter 0.02 mm.

We recommend you to interact with the page: Virtual vernier scale – simulator of use and reading in decimal millimeter before you go on.

Nonius with fifty divisions

Like we saw on page Virtual vernier scale – simulator of use and reading in decimal millimeter , by definition resolution is the smaller difference between indications of a display device that can the significantly perceived .

On this simulator the smaller division of the main scale – fixed scale – is i millimeter, that was divided by fifty divisions of vernier.

Resolution = 1 mm / 50 = 0.02 mm

The resolution of this simulator is two hundredths of millimeter 0.02 mm.
