Surveying(Geomatics) involving allowable misclosures

  1. Oct 19, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Compute the following permissible misclosure for the following line of level.
    a 15kilometer loop of third order level.


    2. Relevant equations
    C=msqrt(K)
    where K is the distance and M is a constant


    3. The attempt at a solution
    For the most part I just need to verify if I copied my answer correctly because when I calculate this, I get 46475MM as my answer, but what I have written down is 46.5MM
    I can see the similarity in the answer, off by a factor of 1000, so could anyone please confirm if my answer is correct and the one I have written down from class just has the wrong units? If I did do it wrong, where did I go wrong?

    I plugged in 12 for m since it's a third order level and plugged in 15KM for K, or 15,000,000MM.
