2 (b) To determine the distance between two point X and Y and their elevations. Following observation were recorded upon vertically held staves from two traverse stations R and S. The tacheometer was fitted with an analytic lens and instrument constant was 100. compute the distance XY gradient from X to Y and bearing of XY

3 (b) In making a survey for a new road , the intersection point of two straights was found to be inacessible. Four points P,Q,R,S were therefor selected two on each straight, and the distance between Q and R was found to be 122.20m. If the angle PQR was 160°47'40' and angle QRS 148°22'20''; Draw up a table of deflection angles and chainages for setting out a 200m radius curve by pegs driven at every 20m chain. Chainage of Q=(140+90) chains.
