## Calculate the Horizontal Length After Slope Correction of Tape

Calculate the Horizontal Length After Slope Correction of Tape Mathematical Problem: The downhill end of the 30 m tape is held 70 cm too low. What is the horizontal length? Solution: Given, l = Length of the tape = 30 m.h = 70 cm = 0.70 m Correction for slope = = = 0.00817 m. …

## Calculate the Correct Length of the Tape – Mathematics Problem & Solution

Mathematics Problem – Example: A line of true length 500 m, when measured by a 20 m tape, is reported to be 502 m long. The correct length of tape is? Solution: Given, True Length = 500 m Measured Length = 502 m The line is measured long (502-500) = 2 m. Hence, the tape …

## Convert The Whole Circle Bearing to Reduced Bearing – || Rules and Example ||

Convert Whole Circle Bearing to Reduced Bearing Rules 1. When Whole Circle Bearing(W.C.B) lies between 0° to 90°.  Reduced Bearing(R.B) = W.C.B 2. When W.C.B lies between 90° to 180°. R.B = (180° – W.C.B) 3. When W.C.B lies between 180° to 270°. R.B = (W.C.B – 180°) 4. When Whole Circle Bearing(W.C.B) lies between 270° to 360°. Reduced Bearing(R.B) = (360° – W.C.B) Example …
