Unformatted text preview: CET 101 - Plane Surveying Notes Compiled by Knud E. Hermansen Professor P.L.S., P.E., Ph.D., Esq. University of Maine Construction Management Technology Surveying Engineering Technology Civil & Environmental Engineering Fall/Spring Semester 1 Preparing Homework 1. Use green or white engineering paper or computer generated print on white paper. If you are using engineering paper the side with the dark grid lines is the BACK. 2. Always begin by restating the question. You may state the question in simpler terms. 3. When answering the question write the relevant equations or citation where the equations or information can be found. 4. List any constants, assumptions, or symbols. 5. Show an example calculation if numerous calculations are required and being done on a spreadsheet or calculator. 6. Show the answer in a clearly discernable manner (highlight, underline, boldface, etc.) 7. Show any relevant checks. Notes: 1. Always do a unit cross-check and show the appropriate units for the answer. 2. Always show the appropriate significant figures in the answer. Example 1. Question: For a length of 231.22 feet, what is the equivalent length in meters? ____________________ Your Response ____________________ Question 1 Problem Restatement : Convert 231.22 feet (L) to meters. Constants : 25.4 mm / in 12 in / ft 3.28084 ft. / m. Equations : L ft. * 12 in / ft * 25.4 mm / in / 1000 m. / mm = Distance (m.) Answer m. * 3.28084 ft. / m. = Distance (ft.) Application : 231.22 ft. * 12 in / ft * 25.4 mm / in / 1000 m. / mm = 70.476 m. Check : 70.476 m. * 3.28084 ft. / m. = 231.22 ft. √ 1 Preparing Homework 1.
