## Modern measuring instruments

Measure and draw with modern measuring instruments

## [lo 1.3]

Measure the lengths in mm of the indicated line sections in the following sketch.

Which measuring-instrument is the most suitable?

Hint for the Teacher:

Allow a margin of ± 2 mm to both sides, but encourage learners to measure accurately all the same.

Background:

What is a line section?

The line sections used to compile the sketch above are mainly HORIZONTAL, VERTICAL, DIAGONAL (slanting) or CURVED.

What is a horizontal line?

What is a vertical line?

What is a diagonal line?

What is a curved line?

## [lo 1.3]

1. Write down the letters of any three horizontal lines in the sketch.
2. How many diagonal lines are there in the sketch?
3. Write down the letters of any two vertical lines in the sketch.
4. Draw over the HORIZONTAL lines in red, the VERTICAL lines in blue and the DIAGONAL lines in green in the sketch.
5. What kind of line is (k)? Can you measure the length of (k)?

How?

## [lo 1.3]

Using a ruler and the four kinds of lines, design and draw any object on squared paper.

## [lo 1.8]

a. Draw a horizontal line of 50 mm with your ruler. Follow the instructions

1. Draw a horizontal line across the page (about 150 mm).
2. Make a little vertical mark on the left of the horizontal line.
3. Place your ruler on the mark.
4. Measure 50 mm and make a small vertical mark on the right.
5. Write 50 mm under the measured line section.

b) Draw a diagonal line of 70 mm with your ruler. Follow the instructions given above.

## [lo 1.3]

Draw a line parallel to each of the following:

Background:

Complete: The point where two lines meet, is called a .The size of an angle is measured in DEGREES and we use a PROTRACTOR to measure the size of an angle.

When a vertical line meets a horizontal line perpendicularly, a __ is formed. The size of such an angle is 90 o .

A line section can also be called a STRAIGHT ANGLE. The size of such an angle is 180 o .

When an angle is between 0 o and 90 o , it is called an ACUTE ANGLE and when an angle is between 90 o and 180 o , it is called an OBTUSE ANGLE.

## [lo 1.2]

Write down what kind of angle each of the following is:

Hint:

Turn the page so that one side of the angle is horizontal, and decide then.

## [lo 1.3]

a. A right angle

b. An acute angle

c. An obtuse angle

Background:

If we combine certain line sections with the above-mentioned three angles, we get GEOMETRICAL FIGURES. They are also called two-dimensional shapes, because they are flat shapes or planes. Lines that are one-dimensional are used in drawings to form two-dimensional shapes or planes. Most two-dimensional figures have two dimensions, namely length and breadth.

## [lo 1.2]

Can you recognise these basic geometrical figures?

Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
what king of growth are you checking .?

What fields keep nano created devices from performing or assimulating ? Magnetic fields ? Are do they assimilate ?
why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
?
Kyle
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
why?
what school?
Kyle
biomolecules are e building blocks of every organics and inorganic materials.
Joe
anyone know any internet site where one can find nanotechnology papers?
research.net
kanaga
sciencedirect big data base
Ernesto
Introduction about quantum dots in nanotechnology
what does nano mean?
nano basically means 10^(-9). nanometer is a unit to measure length.
Bharti
do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?
absolutely yes
Daniel
how to know photocatalytic properties of tio2 nanoparticles...what to do now
it is a goid question and i want to know the answer as well
Maciej
Abigail
for teaching engĺish at school how nano technology help us
Anassong
Do somebody tell me a best nano engineering book for beginners?
there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology
NANO
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
Virgil
is Bucky paper clear?
CYNTHIA
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
NANO
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
s.
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
SUYASH
What is lattice structure?
of graphene you mean?
Ebrahim
or in general
Ebrahim
in general
s.
Graphene has a hexagonal structure
