HOMEWORK “B” 1.You have taken your tape and standardized it on Standards. Your tape measures 99.98 feet between the standards, with 10 lb. pull at 62° F, meaning a measure of 100.00 feet on the tape is 100.02 feet (At 62° F). You take this tape and measure between two section corners. The tapes are fully supported and the temperature is 62° F. You measure it in both directions and come up with the following measurements; 5283.45’ and 5283. 98’.What is the best estimate of the true distance and what is the ratio of error for your measurements? (8 points) 2.Using the same tape you measure between two other section corners when the temperature is 98° F. Your measurements are 5279.46 feet and 5279.63 feet. What is the best estimate of the true distance and what is the ratio of error for you measurement? This will take two corrections to the length (10 Points) 3.You are asked to measure height of a building, which is a vertical building, but has balconies and awnings along the face. To measure the height, you set up a theodolite so that you can see the top and the bottom of the building. Using the
