The scale is and consists of a semicircle divided into degrees, from 0° to rendered complete by drawing straight lines from B on B A, 180° each way, the 90th degree being right above the centre, o. to 1 on B' A'; from 1 on B A, to 2 on B' A'; from 2 on B A, to The straight line, A B, in the figure is the diameter of the semi- 3 on B' A'; and so on, till one be drawn from 9 on B A, to A' circle, and is called the fiducial (or true) edge of the protractor on B' A'. to be applied to one of the legs of the angle to be measured ; By the nature of similar triangles, hereafter to be explained,

the small part of the parallel to the base 1 B', within the triangle B1 B', at the division marked 1, is one-tenth part of the base 1 B', and consequently one-hundredth part of the line A B; the small parts of the other parallels are in succession, twohundredths, three-hundredths, etc. Hence, if a straight line is to be measured, take its length in the compasses, and apply it to the scale from B towards E. If it measures an exact number of units, say from B to E, then the straight line may be said to measure 3, 30, or 300 equal parts, according as A B is made to stand for 1 unit, 1 ten, or 1 hundred. If it does not measure from E to B exactly, but extends from E exactly to one of the

division marks between B and A, say 4, then the straight line Fig. 14.

may be said to measure 3.4, 34, or 340 equal parts, according to

the standard unit, as before. If it does not extend from E to the arch, AI B, being the fiducial edge to be applied to the the division marked 4 between B and A exactly, but falls someother leg. Thus, in order to measure the angle X OY, the where between 4 and 5, then move the compasses downwards, centre of the instrument is placed on the vertex, o, of the angle, preserving one point always in the line E E, and both points and the edge o A on the leg o y, so as to coincide with it parallel to A E, till the other point fall on the intersection of the exactly; then the angle A 0 m, on the arch A MB, determined diagonal marked 4, 4, with one of the parallel straight lines by the point m, through which the other leg, o x, passes, is the marked on B B', say 6; then the straight line may be said to measure of the angle x o y. In this case, the measure appears to be nearly 45 degrees, as the figure represents divisions on the arch or limb of the protractor at every five degrees.

This apparatus for measuring angles is sometimes engraven on the upper side of a pair of parallel rulers, and sometimes on the obverse side of a plane scale. The protractor is more commonly made so that the centre of the semicircle, and the fiducial edge containing it, shall be on the outside of the instrument rather than on the inside, as above.

The Plane Scale is a flat ruler with several lines of equal parta, on one side divided according to certain proportional parts of an inch ; and having, on the other side, the diagonal
