Midterm
An unsymmetrical parabolic curve has a forward tangent of -8% and a back tangent of
+5%. The length of the curve on the left side of the curve is 40m. long while that on the right side
is 60 m long. P.C. is at station 6+780 and has an elevation of 110m.
a) Compute the elevation of the current at station 6+800 110.61m
b) Compute the stationing of the highest point on the curve. 6+805.64
c) Compute the elevation of the highest point on the curve 110.642
A parabolic curve AB 400m long connects two tangent grades of +6.5% and -3. If the elevation of
the summit is 123.256 m, what is the elevation of point B?
a) 122.111
b) 119.625
c) 121.361
d) 120.542
A downgrade of 3.2 percent meets a rising grade of 4.6 percent at Sta 73+180 where the elevation
is 998. A sag curve, 440 m long, connects the gradelines from A at the downgrade to B at the
upgrade. Find the elevation of B in meters.
a) 1008m
b) 1011m
c) 1005m
d) 1014m
A vertical sag parabolic curve is to connect a -2% grade to a +3% grade. The change in grade per meter

At Sta 12 + 180.8m cut. Find the grade of the finished road.8% from Sta 12 + 180 to Sta 12 + 250.4m fill. Find the grade of the finished road. At the other station. the center height of the roadway is 1. the center height is 3.2m fill. At the other station.357% The ground makes a uniform slope of 5% from sta 12 + 180 to sta 12 + 240. the center height of the roadway is 1. Grade of finished road = -1. the center height is 2. At sta 12 + 180.The ground makes a uniform slope of 4.11m cut. G road = -2% .
