Textbook Problem

Technician A uses a feeler gauge and straightedge to determine the pump cover flatness. Technician B uses an outside micrometer to measure the diameter and thickness of the outer rotor. Who is correct?

  1. Technician A

  • Technician B
  • Both A and B
  • Neither A nor B
  • To determine

    The technician who is correct in his approach.

    Explanation

    Given information:

    Technician A uses a feeler gauge and straightedge to determine the pump cover flatness. Technician B uses an outside micrometer to measure the diameter and thickness of the outer rotor.

    The flatness of a pump cover can be measured by a feeler gauge and straightedge. Although the accuracy of using a feeler gauge and straightedge is not so high, it is used because of the reason that it is one of the simplest methods for checking flatness. In one hand the straight edge is used to check straightness whereas on the other hand the feeler gauge is used to measure the clearance between any two objects.

    Micrometers are generally used for measuring the diameter or thickness of an object...
