Principle: the minute difference between the minimum indexing of vernier and the minimum indexing of main ruler is used to accumulate the minute length for measurement。

Reading: as shown in the table below

 vernier(mm) precision（mm） Measurement results (the NTH small lattice on the vernier is aligned with a scale line on the main ruler)(mm) This is the number scale Total scale length Each cell differs by 1 mm 10 9 0.1 0.1 The number of millimeters read on the main ruler +0.1n 20 19 0.05 0.05 The number of millimeters read on the main ruler +0.05n 50 49 0.02 0.02 The number of millimeters read on the main ruler +0.02n

Table analysis:

(1) vernier calipers of 10 degrees. The distance between two adjacent scales on the vernier is 0.9mm, which is 0.1mm less than the distance between two adjacent scales on the main ruler. When reading, first read the number of centimeters and millimeters from the main ruler, and then read the value of 0.1mm bit with the cursor: the first line of the cursor is aligned with a line on the main ruler, and the number of 0.1mm bit is read (not read). Its reading is accurate to 0.1mm.

(2) vernier calipers of 20 degrees. The distance between two adjacent scales on the vernier is 0.95mm, which is 0.05mm smaller than the distance between two adjacent scales on the main ruler. When reading, first read the number of centimeters and millimeters from the main ruler, and then read the value below the millimeter with the cursor: the number of lines on the cursor is aligned with a line on the main ruler, the number below the millimeter reading is 0.05mm. The reading is accurate to 0.05mm.

(3) vernier calipers of 50 degrees. The distance between two adjacent scales on the vernier is 0.98mm, 0.02mm less than the distance between two adjacent scales on the main ruler. The scale of the caliper is special. The scale on the vernier is the reading below the millimeter. The calipers can be accurate to 0.02mm. The diameter of the cylinder measured in the figure is 2.250cm.

(4) vernier calipers are read according to line alignment, so do not go to the next value
