SURVEYING
LINEAR MEASUREMENTS
Q. No. Question Marks Year No
1. An old map was drawn with a scale of 1 cm = 10 m. the field was
surveyed with a 30 m chain which was actually 0.05 m short. An original
length of 10 cm has now shrunk to 9.5 cm on the drawing. The plane area
measured with a planimeter is 95 cm2
. Calculate the actual area of the
land.

was found 5 cm too long after 2000 m. Find the correct length of total
distance chained; assuming chain was 30 m at the beginning of work.
4 May 2012 1

found to be correct. After chaining 840 m the chain was found to be 0.08
m too long. At the end of day's work, after chaining a total distance of
1376 m the chain was found to be 0.12 m too long. What was true
distance chained?

An old map was drawn with a scale of 1 cm = 10 m. the field was surveyed with a 30 m chain which was actually 0.05 m short. An original length of 10 cm has now shrunk to 9.5 cm on the drawing. The plane area measured with a planimeter is 95 cm2 . Calculate the actual area of the land. 9 Nov 2009 2 2. A 30 m chain was 3 cm too long after chaining 1000 m. The same chain was found 5 cm too long after 2000 m. Find the correct length of total distance chained; assuming chain was 30 m at the beginning of work. 4 May 2012 1 3.1. A 20 m chain was tested before the commencement of the day's work and found to be correct. After chaining 840 m the chain was found to be 0.08 m too long. At the end of day's work, after chaining a total distance of 1376 m the chain was found to be 0.12 m too long. What was true distance chained? 6 May 2010 1 4.2. A chain was tested before starting a survey of field and was found to be exactly 30 m. At the end of the survey it was tested again and was found to measure 30.16 m.
