CE/CEM130 – Fall 2008 Name: _________________________________ Dept. of Civil Engineering & CEM California State University, Long Beach Midterm Exam (Total = 100 pts) Highest = 100 Lowest = 30 Average = 80.5 Circle the most appropriate answer for the following questions (5 pts each). Note: Please provide your calculations (if any), for partial credits, in the space given under each question: 1. Levels and rods can be used to determine ____________ A) differences in elevations B) horizontal angles C) vertical angles D) All of the above 2. Using a clinometer, Joe measures a 40 o vertical angle to Bill standing on top of a nearby hill. It took Bill 712 paces to get to the top of the hill and 714 paces coming back. If Bill's calibrated pace is 2.66 ft/pace, the height of the hill Bill climbed from where Joe stands is _________ A) 1450 ft B) 942 ft C) 1219 ft D) 1590 ft Aveg number of paces = (712 + 714)/2 = 713 paces Slope distance = 713 x 2.66 = 1896.58 ft Height of the hill = 1896.58 x (sin 40 o ) = 1219 ft 3. Sin(56° 18' 31" ) or sin(66 o 28’41”) approximately is: A) 0.8320 B) 0.8169 C) 0.9169 D) None of the above Sin(56 + 18’/60 + 31”/3600) = sin(56.3086) = 0.8320 Sin(66 + 28’/60 + 41”/3600) = sin(66.4780) = 0.9169 4. Refer to the Figure of level rod: The rod reading is ____________________ A) 1.85 ft B) 1’-85” C) 1’-65 ” D) None of the above Reading = 1.85 ft 1 50.2 ft EN2

5. If the closure of your measurements is 0.015 m and the loop distance recorded in your differential leveling notes is 1000 m, the order of survey at which the results qualifies is ________________ A) 1 st order Class I B) 2 nd order Class I C) 2 nd order Class II D) None of the above 12 mm x sqrt(1 km) = 12 mm < 15 mm Not qualified for 3 rd order 6. The Figure below shows the loop of distance measurements between benchmarks. Given the fixed elevation and
