# MEASUREMENTS& CONTROLS

Module I

1.What is meant by measurements?
Measurement is the process of determining or finding the size, quantity or
degree of something .Accurate measurement is of very important in
engineering
2.What is an measuring instrument?
Measuring instruments are measuring devices that transform the
measured quantity into an information, either analog or digital.
3.What are the methods of measurements?
There are two types of measurement methods. They are
(1)Direct method
(2)Indirect method
4.What are the three stages of generalized measuring system?
The three stages of generalized measurement system are
a. Detector-transducer element
b. Intermediate modifying stage
c. Terminating stage
5.What is meant by primary measurement?
Primary measurement is one that can e made y direct oservation
!ith out involving any conversion of the measured quantity.
6. What is meant by secondary measurement?
"econdary measurement involves only one transformation to e done
on the quantity under measurement.
7. What is meant by tertiary measurement?
Tertiary measurement involves t!o translations to e done on the
quantity under measurement.
8.what are the functions of the measuring instruments?
The functions of the measuring instruments are
a. Indicating function
b. #ecording function
c. \$ontrolling function
.what are the applications of the measuring instruments?
The applications of the measuring instruments are
a. Monitoring of processes and operations
b. \$ontrol of process
c. %&perimental engineering analysis
!".#efine sensiti\$ity.
"ensitivity '() refers to the aility of the measuring device to measure
small differences in the quantity eing measured. It is also defined as the ratio
of the magnitude of response *o+p, to the magnitude of the quantity eing
measured.
!!.What is span of an instrument?
"pan is the algeraic difference et!een the higher value and the lo!er
value it can measure.
!%.#efine &ange.
The instrument is calirated to read a value et!een t!o limits, one is
the higher caliration value and the other is the lo!er caliration value. This
region et!een !hich the instrument is to operate is called the range.
!3.What is reproducibility?
It is defined as the degree of closeness !ith !hich a given value may e
means that the instrument has no drift.
!4.What are the factors affecting &eadability?
c. "ize of pointer
d. Paralla& effects
!5.What is meant by drift?
If an instrument does not reproduce the same reading at different times
of measurement for the same input signal, it is said to have drift. If an
instrument has prefect reproduciility, it is said to have no drift.
!6.what does zero drift mean?
If the !hole caliration gradually drifts due to slippage, permanent set
or due to undue !arming up of electronic tue circuits zero drift sets in. this
can e eliminated y zero setting.
.ero drift line

/+P -ominal curve
I+P
!6.what is meant by span drift?
If there is proportional change in all along the up!ard scale the drift is
called the span drift

"pan drift

/+P nominal curve

I+P
!7.what is meant by zonal drift?

called as zonal drift.
.onal drift

/+P -ominal curve

!8.what is meant by repeatability?
#epeataility is a measure of closeness !ith !hich a given input may
e measured over again repeataility is defined as the variation of scale
reading and it is random in nature.
!.what is calibration?
\$aliration of a measuring instrument means introducing an
accurately 0no!n sample of the variale that is to e measured and then
chec0ing the system1s response then the measuring instrument is chec0ed !ith
and ad2usted until its scale is introduced accurately for measuring.
%".what are the different types of calibration?
There are t!o types of caliration namely
a. Primary caliration
b. "econdary caliration
%!.What are the different types of secondary calibration?
The different types of secondary caliration are
a. Direct caliration
b. "econdary caliration
%%.what is meant by primary calibration?
In primary caliration, a system is calirated against a primary
standard provided. 3or e.g. calirating flo! meters.
%3what is meant by secondary calibration?
In secondary caliration, a device that has een calirated y primary
caliration is used.
%4.What is meant by direct calibration?
In direct caliration, a standard device is placed in series !ith the
device to e calirated is used and caliration is done y comparing readings
of the t!o devices over the desired range.
%5.what is meant by indirect calibration?
This procedure is ased on the equivalence of t!o different devices
adopting some similarity concept. %.g. flo! measurement-requirement of
similarity is 4#eynolds1s numer should e equal1.
%6.'ow are mechanical measurements classified?
Mechanical measurements are roadly classified into t!o categories
a. Mechanics type
b. Po!er type
%7.What are the three methods in mechanics type measurements?
The three types of mechanic type measurements are
a. %mpirical method
b. #ational method
c. %&perimental method
%8.Write about rational method of measurements?
#ational method of measurement is strictly ased upon scientific
la!s and relationships. These types of la!s are mainly availale in mechanics
and thermodynamics. 5hile in other areas there is scarcity for this type of
la!s. 6ence in other areas it has limited scope.
"ensing element of the measuring instrument asors some energy
hence the instrument does not give accurate readings, this effect is called
3".write down the classification of measuring instruments?
Measuring instruments are roadly classified into
a. Mechanical instruments
b. %lectrical instruments
c. %lectronic instruments
3!.#efine error.
%rror is defined as the difference et!een the indicated quantity
and the true value.
3%.Whatismeant by fidelity?
3idelity is the aility of the measuring instrument to reproduce the
output in the same form as the input.
33.#efine hysterisis.
5hen loaded energy is put into the stressed component is not
hysterisis.
34.#efine dynamic error.
The difference between the indicated quantity and the true value of
the time varying quantity is called dynamic error.
