  • Length and Time
    • Length
      • Rules (align eyes with position being measured)
      • Small distances
        • Micrometer
          • Fixed scale + Scale on revolving barrel (decimal on front)
        • Vernier
          • Highest scale division (above 0) + where divisions coincide (decimal point in front)
    • Time
      • Clock (reaction time)
      • Short Interval of time
        • e.g. Period of a pendulum
          • Period = time taken for a complete swing
          • Period = Time for n oscillations / n
            • e.g. Time for 10 oscillations / 10
        • Multiple measurements taken and then averaged
