# Practice On Reading A Vernier Caliper With Zero Error

Show/Hide Sub-topics (Measurement | O Level Physics)

The top image depicts the vernier caliper with its jaws tightly closed while the bottom image depicts the vernier caliper with its jaws closed on an object. Find the zero error and the correct reading of the vernier calipers below.

$$\text{Zero Error }=-0.03 \text{cm}$$

$$0.06 \text{cm}-(-0.03 \text{cm}) = 0.09 \text{cm}$$

$$\text{Zero Error }=+0.03 \text{cm}$$

$$1.06 \text{cm}-(+0.03 \text{cm}) = 1.03 \text{cm}$$

$$\text{Zero Error }=-0.06 \text{cm}$$

$$6.43 \text{cm}-(-0.06 \text{cm}) = 6.49 \text{cm}$$
