2(e) It was required to determine the distance between two points. A and B by tacheometer fitted with anallatic lens (K=100, C=0) with the instrument at A and staff at B, the observations made were at vertical angle +9046' and staff intercepts of 1.915m. What is the horizontal distance AB? Later on it was found that the constants of instrument were 100 and 0.5. What would by the percentage error in the horizontal distance computed?
