Question 1 of 5

Calipers are similar to micrometers in shape but instead of measuring distances, calipers are used to transfer distances between objects. An outside caliper is used to transfer outside dimensions while an inside caliper is used to transfer inside distances. A vernier caliper is an extremely precise caliper (down to \({1 \over 1000}\) inch) that allows measuring / transferring either inside or outside dimensions.

What is a caliper used for?

making perfectly vertical lines

measuring thickness and irregular shapes

ensuring that surfaces are level

transferring distances between objects
