Linear measurement is the measurement of Diameters,Lengths,Thickness,Heights and also which are includes internal measurements and external measurements.

linear measurement and Types of linear measuring instruments

The Linear measurements are classified into Two types they are.

  1. Precision Instruments
  2. Non – Precision instrument
