# MCQs on Angle Gauges

1 - Question

Which of the following option is incorrect with respect to angle gauges?
a) Sine bar is better than angle gauges
b) Angle gauges are made of high carbon high chromium steel
c) Angle gauges can measure the angle from 0 to 360 degrees
d) They are available in two sets of 13 and 16 gauges

Explanation: Angle gauges are more accurate than sine bar as it involves trigonometric functions.

2 - Question

How 34’ can be built by using angle gauges?
a) 27’+9’-3’+1’
b) 26’+10’-2’
c) 27’+10’-3’
d) 27’+8’

Explanation: Combinations can be made by only three series of angle gauges. Minutes series is with 1’, 3’, 9’, 27’ angle gauges.

3 - Question

In how many series the gauges can be divided?
a) 1
b) 2
c) 3
d) 4

Explanation: 16 or 13 Gauges can be divided into 3 series i.e. degree, minutes and seconds (fraction of minute).

4 - Question

What is the approximate size of angle gauges?
a) 76mm long and 16 wide
b) 85mm long and 26 wide
c) 16mm long and 75 wide
d) 70mm long and 18 wide

Explanation: Angle gauges are about 3 inch (76.2 mm) long and 5/8 inch (15.87 mm) wide. And their faces are lapped within 0.0002 mm.

5 - Question

What is the accuracy of master angle gauges?
a) 0.1 sec
b) 1 sec
c) 0.25 sec
d) 3 sec

Explanation: Master Angle gauges are laboratory standard and most expensive of all. They measure the angle with an accuracy of 0.25 sec.

6 - Question

Which gauges are present in the first series (degree) of angle gauges?
a) 5°, 10°, 15°, 25° and 40°
b) 1°, 3°, 9°, 27° and 41°
c) 1°, 5°, 9°, 25° and 45°
d) 5°, 10°, 15°, 30° and 45°

Explanation: The standard angles gauges have 5 gauges present in the first series. They consist of 1°, 3°, 9°, 27° and 41° gauges.

7 - Question

How many sets of angle gauges are available?
a) 1
b) 2
c) 3
d) 4

Explanation: Two sets of angle gauges are available. One set with 16 gauges with an accuracy of 1’’ and one set with 13 gauges with 3’’.

8 - Question

Which of the following option is true for the given statements?
Statement 1: Any angle up to 120o4’2’’ be made by a direct combination of angle gauges.
Statement 2: Interferometry can be used to calibrate angle gauges.
a) T, F
b) F, F
c) F, T
d) T, T

Explanation: Direct combination of angle gauges can be made up to angle 81o40.9’. For the larger angle, square block is used with angle gauges.

9 - Question

What are the two grades of angle gauges?
a) Master and tool room
b) Precise and Normal
c) Standard and Industrial
d) High and low

Explanation: Master grade is laboratory standard and made from steel carbide or tungsten carbide. Tool grade is normal industrial purpose angle gauges made from steel.

10 - Question

How angle greater than 90° is measured?
a) By repeating gauges
b) Using square plate
c) Using sine bar
d) Using auto collimator

Explanation: Versatility of angle gauges increases when used with a square plate. Square plates with angle gauge can measure angle greater than 90o.
