  Vernier scale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It was invented in its modern form in 1631 by the French mathematician Pierre Vernier (1580–1637).
Verniers are common on sextants, scientific instuments and machinists' measuring tools (all sorts, but especially calipers and micrometers) and on theodolites.
Now if you move the vernier by a small amount say one tenth of its fixed main scale, the only pair of marks which come into alignment will be the first pair since these were the only ones originally misaligned by one tenth.

 VERNIER, PIERRE (c. 1580–1637) - Online Information article about VERNIER, PIERRE (c. 1580–1637)
graduation 4 of the vernier coincides with a division of the standard, and the determination of the excess of a over 3 scale divisions reduces to the difference of 7 divisions of the normal scale and 6 divisions of the vernier.
It is seen that division 6 of the vernier coincides with a normal scale division, and obviously the excess of fl over two normal scale divisions equals the difference between 6 normal scale divisions and 6 vernier divisions, i.e.
The vernier is such that 24 divisions of the normal scale equal 25 of the vernier; each of the latter therefore is •002 or•.azth inch less than the normal division.

 Vernier Scale
A vernier instrument increases the measuring precision beyond what it would normally be with an ordinary measuring scale like a ruler or meter stick.
Since the vernier scale pictured above is constructed to have ten divisions in the space of nine on the main scale, any single division on the vernier scale is 0.1 divisions less than a division on the main scale.
Using the vernier calipers provided: In figure 5 below, the relation between the vernier and main scale is not one of ten in the space of nine but of twenty in the space of nineteen.

To a quadrant with a primary scale in half degrees Vernier proposed to attach a movable sector, thirty-one half degrees in length but divided into thirty equal parts (each part consisting then of a half degree plus one minute).
In measuring an angle, minutes could be easily reckoned by noticing which division line of the sector coincided with a division line of the quadrant.
The name vernier, now commonly applied to a small movable scale attached to a sextant, barometer, or other graduated instrument, was given by Lalande who showed that the previous name nonius, after Peter Nunez, belonged more properly to a different contrivance.

Pierre Vernier was taught mathematics and science by his father who was a lawyer and engineer who held government office.
Being born in Franche-Comté (Free Country) meant that Vernier (and his father) were involved, not with the government of France but with that of Spain.
Vernier became a government official holding various positions such as military engineer for the Hapsburgs and director general of the treasury in Dole and Besançon, the capital of Franche- Comté.

Pierre Vernier, the inventor of the instrument which bears his name, was born in Ornans, Franche-Comte in 1580.
Pierre became captain and castellan, for the King of Spain, of the castle at Ornans, and councillor and director general of moneys in the County of Burgundy.
Vernier scales are now used on sextants, barometers, and other graduated instruments that require extreme precision.

 The Open Door Web Site : IB Physics : Measurements : The VERNIER Scale
A Vernier scale is a small, moveable scale placed next to the main scale of a measuring instrument.
Notice that 10 divisions of the Vernier scale have the same length as 9 divisions of the main scale.
Hence, the level of precision of an instrument which has a Vernier scale depends on the difference between the size of the smallest division on the main scale and the size of the smallest division on the Vernier scale.

It utilizes two graduated scales: a main scale similar to that on a ruler and an especially graduated auxiliary scale, the vernier, that slides parallel to the main scale and enables readings to be made to a fraction of a division on the main scale.

He was working as a military engineer for the Spanish Habsburgs, then the rulers of Franche-Comté, when he realized the need for a more accurate way of reading angles on the surveying instruments he used in mapmaking.
In 1630 he was appointed to the service of the count of Burgundy, for whom he built fortifications.
In 1631 Vernier published La construction, l'usage, et les propriétez du quadrant nouveau mathématique/The construction, uses and properties of a new mathematical quadrant, in which he explained his method.

Soon to be sixteen, the girl isn't much interested in him, prefers the companionship of the man engaged to marry Julien's older sister; Julia's little sister, Puone (Valerie Dumas), roughly twelve, wouldn't mind dating her cousin, though, has a big crush on him.
If this is starting to sound a bit complicated, make note that Julien's dad is hot for the young stable-hand (Pierre Chantepie), really likes seeing the older adolescent in a dress.
