Assume that you continue measuring
up the slope with a 100-foot tape.
The head chainman is holding zero
at point D.
What is the horizontal
distance between points C and D?
The standard error of a 100-foot
tape can be determined in which of
the following ways?
By calibration by the Bureau of
By comparison with a length of
a calibrated 100-foot tape
By comparison with a known
By each of the above means
By calibrating a tape, you should
remember that the standard tension

100-foot tape supported throughout
5 lb, 65°F
10 lb, 68°F
15 lb, 68°F

A 100-foot tape has a standard
error of 0.003 feet.
What is the
total error for a taped distance of
(Round off to the
nearest 0.01 foot.)
Under standard conditions, a tape
indicates 100.00 feet when it
actually should measure 99.996
Using this tape, how far
should you measure to set a point
450 feet away from another point?
A tape has a standard error which
causes it to indicate 99.996 feet
when it is actually measuring
What is the actual
distance between two points if the
taped distance is 259.05 feet?
