  Micrometer
Some micrometers implement the friction mechanism as a "barrel" attached to the thimble: it serves the same purpose.
The diagram to the right is a close-up of the micrometer showing the thimble.
In the animation, as opposed to a real micrometer, we only do readings of the distance to the nearest hundredth of a millimeter.

  Micrometer - LoveToKnow 1911
The principle of Gascoigne's micrometer is that two pointers having parallel edges at right angles to the measuring screw, are moved in opposite directions symmetrically with and at right angles to the axis of the telescope.
This screw is mounted on an oblong box which carries one of the measuring edges; the other edge is moved by the coarser part of the screw relatively to the edge attached to the box, whilst the box itself is moved relatively to the axis of the telescope by the finer screw.
The micrometer is now clamped in position-angle by the clamp C, the star again brought back to the axis, and delicate adjustment given in position-angle by the slow-motion screw M, till the star-image remains bisected whilst it traverses the whole length of the position-web by the diurnal motion only.

 Micrometer   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The micrometer is an extremely precise measuring instrument; the reading error is 1/200 mm = 0.005 mm.
To read the distance between the jaws of the micrometer, simply add the number of half-millimeters to the number of hundredths of millimeters.
The micrometer may not be calibrated to read exactly zero when the jaws are completely closed.

 Micrometer - Definition, explanation
A micrometer is a widely used device in mechanical engineering for precisely measuring thickness of blocks, outer and inner diameters of shafts and depths of slots.
Micrometers have several advantages over other types of measuring instruments like the Vernier caliper: they are easy to use and their readouts are consistent.
Micrometer is also the U.S. spelling of micrometre, a millionth of a metre or meter.

 Micrometer Summary
To read a metric micrometer, note the number of millimetre divisions visible on the scale of the sleeve, and add the total to the particular division on the thimble which coincides with the axial line on the sleeve.
Some micrometers are provided with a vernier scale on the sleeve in addition to the regular graduations.
Metric micrometers of this type are read as follows: First determine the number of whole millimetres (if any) and the number of hundredths of a millimetre, as with an ordinary micrometer, and then find a line on the sleeve vernier scale which exactly coincides with one on the thimble.

 Brainboost - what is a external micrometer   (Site not responding. Last check: )
There are three types of micrometers based on their application: - External micrometer - Internal micrometer - Depth micrometer An external micrometer is typically used to measure wires, spheres, shafts and blocks.
For usability purposes, a type (micrometer), sub - type (external micrometer) and optionally a size (0 - 25 mm external micrometer) is associated with each gage.
While an external micrometer is shown here the invention is believed to have a greater utility as an internal micrometer.

 NAMA: Stage Micrometer
NAMA maintains a stage micrometer for use in calibrating the eyepiece reticles of compound microscopes.
The stage micrometer is a finely graduated, numbered scale attached to a standard microscope slide.
You need the stage micrometer only once (that's why it's expensive to buy one yourself) to calibrate your eyepiece reticle at each power setting on your scope.

 How to Read a Vernier Micrometer   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Vernier micrometers have lines marked on the sleeve that let you read ten-thousandths of an inch.
A real micrometer looks a little different and I encourage you to ask for a vernier micrometer so you can experiment with the real tool.
Before you believe what your hands and micrometer are telling you, you must make several measurements to ensure you get consistent results.

 microMETER README
The UL-approved use of any microMETER equipment in installations operating at more than 240 volts and less than 600 merely requires the use of "thick wire" CT leads, which are orange in color when supplied by us and marked "600v".
Since the device reads out its information in the sequence 1 thru 16, it is essential to wire your circuits in the same sequence; in other words, in the order in which you want the circuits to be read out so that the printout of data won't be all jumbled up.
Mount the microMETER near the circuits to be monitored.

 Making petrographic thin sections
Using the micrometer, back the chuck away from the cup wheel until the thin section barely misses the wheel.
Move the chuck back and fourth, advancing the chuck with the micrometer by 5 increments for each 5 passes or so, until the chuck is within one full revolution (200 m m, 100 increments) of the final end position described above.
Write down the micrometer position, because this is approximately the end point for all of the rest of your sections.

 EO Library: What Are Aerosols? Fact Sheet
Aerosol particles larger than about 1 micrometer in size are produced by windblown dust and sea salt from sea spray and bursting bubbles.
Aerosols smaller than 1 micrometer are mostly formed by condensation processes such as conversion of sulfur dioxide (SO2) gas (released from volcanic eruptions) to sulfate particles and by formation of soot and smoke during burning processes.
After formation, the aerosols are mixed and transported by atmospheric motions and are primarily removed by cloud and precipitation processes.

 New motor first to be powered by living bacteria
Scientists aren't sure what causes the bacteria to move, other than that several proteins are involved, but Hiratsuka's group was still able to take advantage of the gliding ability by using entire M.
The entrance ways ensure that a majority of bacteria glide in the same direction around the tracks, which are each fitted with rotors that have protrusions in the track to allow the bacteria to bind to and pull the rotors (see figure).
Although an efficiently simple design, the tiny size of the motor (e.g., each rotor is 20 micrometers in diameter) required special fabrication techniques.
