This method is used if there are more than one angles to be measure from a certain station point. Consider the following fiqure, we will measure angles AOB and BOC using this method.

  • Setup the theodolite at station O, bisect the point A with a certain circle reading with face left.
  • Rotate the instrument in clockwise direction and bisect B, note the circle reading.
  • Then rotate and the telescope till it bisect the point C, note this circle reading also. All these reading will book into face left position.
  • Transit the telescope and rotate the instrument through 180°, this time bisect the point C firstly and then rotate telescope in anti clockwise direction towards B and then ultimately towards A. Put these readings in face right position.
  • You can do more than one sets of measurements for the accurate results, i have done one set and booking method is as follows,

What does slope determine?

Slope is the angle compared with the horizontal, where the horizontal is 90° to the vertical, which can be measured with a plumb line. So, put a weight on a string, measure the angle of the string to the angle you are measuring, subtract 90° and that will give you the slope.

What angle has the same horizontal displacment as 20 degrees?

20 degrees is a measure of angular displacement. This cannot be converted to lateral (horizontal) displacement.

How do you work out angles with only numbers. for example im trying to make a 30 degree angle with only a straight ruler is it possible for me to work a height and apply the angle?

For certain angles, the answer is yes. For 30o to the horizontal (in the positive x direction), you need to measure the horizontal distance to be twice the vertical distance. For example, draw a triangle with a base length of 10cm and, at a right angle to the base, measure a height of 5cm. The angle to the horizontal (the smaller angle) will be 30o. (The opposite is true for the angle of 60o).

The angle formed by a horizontal line?

The angle formed by a horizontal line is 180o.

Horizontal as opposed to at an angle?

Horizontal is an angle. Angles are reference measurements to another line or plane.
