Assignment No.1 Q1: Define surveying and classify it. Q2: What are the primary objectives of surveying? Q3: Write a short note on fundamental principal of surveying. Assignment No.2 Q1: What are the direct methods of measurement? Q2: Describe the different kinds of chains commonly used in surveying, stating the special advantage of each with neat diagrams. Q3: The length of a line measured with a Gunter’s chain was found to be 5000 links. If the chain was 0.2 link too short, find the true length of the line. (Ans: 4990 links) Q4. The distance between two stations was measured with a 20m chain and found to be 1000m. The same distance was measured with a 30m chain and found to be 996.17m. If the 20m chain was 0.05m too short, what was the error in the 30m chain? (Ans: +0.04m) Q5. An Engineer’s chain was found to be 7.5cm too long after chaining 120m. It was found to be 15cm too long at the end of the day’s work, after chaining a total distance of 210m. If the chain was correct before the commencement of chaining, find the true distance. (Ans: 210.49m) Q6. The plan of an old survey plotted to a scale of 10m to 1cm was found to have shrunk so that a line originally 10cm long was found to measure 9.8cm. There was also a note on the plan that the 30m chain used in the survey was 0.03m too short. If the area of the plan measured now with a planimeter is 96.04 cm2, determine the true area of the survey. (Ans: 9980 m2) Assignment No.3 Q1. Explain the types of errors in chaining. Q2. A line was measured on a rising gradient of 1 to 10 and found to be 313.5m. It was afterwards found that the 30m chain was 5cm too long. Find the correct length of the line. (312.46m) Q3. A steel tape was exactly 30m long at 18°c when supported throughout its length under a pull of 80n. A line was measured with a tape under a pull of 120n and found to be 801m. The mean temperature during the measurement was 26°c. Assuming the tape to be supported at every 30m, compute the true length of the line, given that the cross-sectional area of the tape=0.04 cm2, the mass density of steel is 0.0077 kg/cm3, the coefficient of expansion= 0.0000117 per °c and the modulus of elasticity=21x106 n/cm2. (800.92m)
