(1) Some micrometers have a vernier scale on the frame in addi-
tion to the regular graduations so that measurements within 0.0001
inch can be taken. This arrangement is shown in figure 15 @. Mi-
crometers of this type read as follows: first, determine the number of
thousandths, as with the ordinary micrometer; then find a line on the
vernier scale that exactly coincides with one on the thimble. The nm-
ber of this line represents the number of ten-thousandths to be added
to the number of thousandths contained on the regular graduations.
The relation between the graduation of the vernier and those of the
thimble is as follows: the vernier has ten divisions which occupy the
same space as nine divisions on the thimble. The difference between
the width of a vernier division and one on the thimble is equal to one-
tenth of the space on the thimble. Therefore, a mlovelment of the
thimble-equal to the difference between the vernier and the thimble
graduation-represents 0.0001 inch.
