b.
A level is set up on an extended line BA in a position 70m from A and 100m from B, reads
1.684m on a staff held at A and 2.122m on a staff held at B, the bubble having been
carefully brought to the centre of its run before each reading. It is known that the reduced
levels of the tops of the pegs at A and B are 89.62m and 89.222m respectively. Find:
i) The Collimation error.
ii) The Reading that would have been obtained has there been no Collimation error.
