Pressure Gauge Types, Working Principle

Pressure gauges are devices that are used to measure the pressure of the system. To understand the concept of pressure gauge and how it works, first of all, we need to understand what is pressure. Pressure is an essential component of our daily life. Generally, we speak about atmospheric pressure, vacuum pressure, blood pressure, and … Read more

What is Hydraulics and Hydraulic components

Hydraulics has been derived from 2 Greek words that are: ‘Hydor’ which means water and ‘Aulus’ which means pipe. So in simple terms, we can say that hydraulic can be defined as the work done by the fluids in the pipes. Hydraulic is one of the main sources of power transmission in modern equipment and … Read more

Types of Gears

There are many types of gears. Gear is generally defined as the rotating circular machine part which is having the teeth cut on its surface and these teeth mesh with the other teeth to transmit the torque and speed. Gear devices can generally change the torque, speed, and direction of a power source. Two or … Read more

Micrometer (Screw Gauge): Working Principle, Least Count, Parts and Units

The micrometer is also known as the micrometer screw gauge and is used to measure the dimensions particularly linear dimensions of the objects. It is used to measure the outside diameter, thickness, and length of solid objects. Parts of the Micrometer First of all, we will check the parts of the micrometer and will understand … Read more

Vernier Caliper: Diagram, Least Count, Formula

Vernier Caliper is a measuring instrument that is used to take the dimensions of objects whether the dimension is linear or measuring the diameter of round objects. Vernier Caliper is invented by French mathematician Pierre Vernier in 1631. The main use of the vernier caliper over the main scale is to get precise and accurate measurements. … Read more
