Re: General Quiz

Hi,

#6675. Name the visual aid that allows the user to measure more precisely than could be done unaided when reading a uniformly divided straight or circular measurement scale. It is a scale that indicates where the measurement lies in between two of the graduations on the main scale.

6676.  Name the Dutch spectacle-maker from Middelburg associated with the invention of the first optical telescope (1585 – pre-1632). He is sometimes also credited for inventing the first truly compound microscope. However, the origin of the microscope, just like the origin of the telescope, is a matter of debate.

Re: General Quiz

Hi,

#6687. Name the instrument used to make a cyclically moving object appear to be slow-moving, or stationary. It consists of either a rotating disk with slots or holes or a lamp such as a flashtube which produces brief repetitive flashes of light. Usually the rate of it is adjustable to different frequencies. When a rotating or vibrating object is observed with it at its vibration frequency (or a submultiple of it), it appears stationary. Thus, they are also used to measure frequency.

#6688. Name an early measuring instrument used for the measurement of electric current. It works by using a compass needle to compare a magnetic field generated by the unknown current to the magnetic field of the Earth. It consists of a coil of insulated copper wire wound on a circular non-magnetic frame. The frame is mounted vertically on a horizontal base provided with levelling screws. The coil can be rotated on a vertical axis passing through its centre. A compass box is mounted horizontally at the centre of a circular scale.
