# Uncertainty of micrometer screw gauge - Micrometer Screw Gauge: Principle, construction and its use

On measuring the length of the same pencil by vernier caliper we measure the length as 9.

Problems on Use of Micrometer Screw Gauge: Example 01: The screw of the micrometer screw gauge moves through a distance of 2 mm when it is turned through 4 rotations.

### Errors and uncertainties

Topic: Micrometer, Working Principle, construction, Reading measurements.

### Using the ISO "Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurements" to determine calibration requirements.

This approach leaves companies with the cost of excessive calibration in some areas, while leaving them exposed in other areas where they "undercalibrate".

Only later we found that our micrometer screw guage is prone to zero errors and we did not take that into account in our measurement.

Description: This slide can be very much useful for As level physics students.

In this slide I have tried to have slides of lecture notes.
This is very high accuracy compared to the vernier calliper accuracy 0.
If there is a decimal point, the rightmost digit is the least significant digit even if it is zero.

However, if the zero on both scales fails to coincide then the micrometer screw gauge is said to exhibit zero error. This zero error of micrometer may be attributed to wear and tear or manufacturing defects. Generally, there are two types of zero errors, they include: Positive Zero Error

The accuracy of the micrometre screw gauge is 0.01. This is very high accuracy compared to the vernier calliper accuracy 0.02. Most of the engineering works have to require more precession. so screw gauge is the suitable instrument that achieves the required accuracy. The available micrometre accuracy is up to 0.001

Micrometers need calibration but, when in calibration they can accurately measure up to 0.0001″ for the higher quality gauges. That being said, the final accuracy is a function of the skill of the user. It is a screw gauge and, as a result, it can apply a huge load onto the item being measured and read under size.

Micrometer screw gauge is defined as an instrument that is used for measuring the diameter of thin wires, the thickness of small sheets such as glass or plastics.
