What is the horizontal distance in feet?
How many square feet in a one acre?
What type of telescoping rod is often used with levels, transits, and total stations?
If a 1,000-ft road has a vertical rise of 15 ft what percent incline does the road have?
Using trigonometric functions the Opposite Side divided by the Adjacent Side is equal to the ___________ of the angle.
The federal and state governments have established elevations of various inland points throughout the country. What elevation are these points in relationship to?
0' - 0"

You have completed the installation of a 30 inch diameter raw water pipeline that is 1,000 feet long. The specifications require hydrostatic testing of the pipeline which requires the pipeline to be filled with water and tested under pressure. How many gallons of water do you need to fill the pipe. 1 cubic foot of water equals 7.485 gallons.
How many feet are in a mile?
A line perpendicular to a horizontal plane.
How many acres in a square mile?
What do contour lines that are spaced further apart indicate.
direction of erosion
direction of water runoff
In leveling, a sight taken on the level rod to determine the elevation of any point.
You are laying out the foundations for a rectangular structure that is 65'-0" long and 30'-0" wide. For squaring up the structure during layout what is the diagonal measurement in feet and inches.
71' - 7 1/16"
71' - 6 7/8"
47' - 6"
You are ready to lay out the grade points for the acoustical ceiling tile grid using a rotating lazer. When the rod is placed on the benchmark (BM) with and elevation of 660.00 the receiver indicates a reading of 5.55 feet. At what reading on the inverted rod will the receiver be placed so the ceiling grid will be set at 670.00.
Assume that you are looking at the cross section of a concrete lined canal which is 20 feet wide at the bottom and the sides are set at a 1-1/2(H) : 1(V) slope from the bottom (horizontal) of the canal, the depth of the water flow is 12 feet. Using the cross sectional view, how many lineal feet of wetted cross section is there?
Using trigonometric functions the Opposite Side divided by the Hypotenuse is equal to the ___________ of the angle.
A degree is a unit of circular measurement equal to _________ of the circle.
Assume that you are looking at the cross section of a concrete lined canal which is 20 feet wide at the bottom and the sides are set at a 33o 41' 24" slope from the bottom (horizontal) of the canal, the depth of the water flow is 12 feet. Using the cross sectional view, how many lineal feet of wetted cross section is there?
_________ is the clockwise or counterclockwise angle measured off of North or South that is used to describe the direction of the line.
Which of the following instruments does not measure vertical angles?
Robotic Total Station
360 feet of 24 inch diameter pipe is being laid on a slope at a slope angle of 33o 00' 00". What is the drop in elevation from the high point to the low point.
In construction, the EDM instrument has radically changed the manner in which surveying is used on the jobsite. EDM is an acronym for:
-Electronic Dynamic Measuring
-Effective Distance Measuring
-Electronic Distance Measuring
-Efficient Distant Measuring
electronic distance measuring
You are required to establish grade for the bottom of a footing (BOF) that is 1 foot thick. The elevation at the top of the footing (TOF) is 98.00'. The elevation of the existing grade is 102.33'. The backsight (BS) of the instrument on the benchmark (BM) of 100.00' is 6.78'. What is the correct reading on the rod at the bottom of the footing?
The size of the stake often indicates its purpose. Typically a 1-1/2 inch by 1-1/2 inch piece of wood that can be obtained in lengths of 6", 12', 18" or 24". A _________ is generally used to mark a specific point such as center line points, control points, radius points, blue tops, etc.
None of the above are correct.
You have been tasked to determine the quantity of sand stored onsite in a stockpile for the concrete batch plant. The stockpile has a base dimension of 60 feet x 120 feet. The angle of repose for the sand on all four sides of the stockpile is 32o 00' 00". What is the volume of the stockpile.
Assume you are placing asphalt on a driveway that is 15 feet wide and 8 inches thick. The plans show the drive is 200 feet horizontally. The driveway has an incline of 10o 00' 00". What is the actual sloped length of the driveway?
