Module 5

Modern measuring instruments

Measure and draw with modern measuring instruments

Assignment 1:


[lo 1.3]

Measure the lengths in mm of the indicated line sections in the following sketch.

Which measuring-instrument is the most suitable?

Hint for the Teacher:

Allow a margin of ± 2 mm to both sides, but encourage learners to measure accurately all the same.


What is a line section?

The line sections used to compile the sketch above are mainly HORIZONTAL, VERTICAL, DIAGONAL (slanting) or CURVED.

What is a horizontal line?

What is a vertical line?

What is a diagonal line?

What is a curved line?

Assignment 2:

Look at the sketch at assignment 1 and answer the following questions

[lo 1.3]

  1. Write down the letters of any three horizontal lines in the sketch.
  2. How many diagonal lines are there in the sketch?
  3. Write down the letters of any two vertical lines in the sketch.
  4. Draw over the HORIZONTAL lines in red, the VERTICAL lines in blue and the DIAGONAL lines in green in the sketch.
  5. What kind of line is (k)? Can you measure the length of (k)?


Assignment 3:

Drawing lines with instruments

[lo 1.3]

Using a ruler and the four kinds of lines, design and draw any object on squared paper.

Assignment 4:

Drawing of lines using instruments

[lo 1.8]

a. Draw a horizontal line of 50 mm with your ruler. Follow the instructions

  1. Draw a horizontal line across the page (about 150 mm).
  2. Make a little vertical mark on the left of the horizontal line.
  3. Place your ruler on the mark.
  4. Measure 50 mm and make a small vertical mark on the right.
  5. Write 50 mm under the measured line section.

b) Draw a diagonal line of 70 mm with your ruler. Follow the instructions given above.

Assignment 5:


[lo 1.3]

Draw a line parallel to each of the following:


Complete: The point where two lines meet, is called a .The size of an angle is measured in DEGREES and we use a PROTRACTOR to measure the size of an angle.

When a vertical line meets a horizontal line perpendicularly, a __ is formed. The size of such an angle is 90 o .

A line section can also be called a STRAIGHT ANGLE. The size of such an angle is 180 o .

When an angle is between 0 o and 90 o , it is called an ACUTE ANGLE and when an angle is between 90 o and 180 o , it is called an OBTUSE ANGLE.

Assignment 6:

[lo 1.2]

Write down what kind of angle each of the following is:


Turn the page so that one side of the angle is horizontal, and decide then.

Assignment 7:

Draw two examples of each kind of angle with your pencil or ruler.

[lo 1.3]

a. A right angle

b. An acute angle

c. An obtuse angle


If we combine certain line sections with the above-mentioned three angles, we get GEOMETRICAL FIGURES. They are also called two-dimensional shapes, because they are flat shapes or planes. Lines that are one-dimensional are used in drawings to form two-dimensional shapes or planes. Most two-dimensional figures have two dimensions, namely length and breadth.

Assignment 8:

[lo 1.2]

Can you recognise these basic geometrical figures?

Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log

Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land

preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
