## NAME: _____________________________________________ (print) INTRODUCTORY SURVEYING – MINING ENGINEERING 2400 Second Midterm Exam October 24, 2014 Work all four problems in the space provided. Solutions must be neat and logically presented for full credit. 1. (25 pts) Put an “X” over the letter corresponding to correct answers for the following multiple choice questions. A theodolite is used to estimate a distance using stadia. The stadia factor is 100, the stadia constant is zero, the zenith angle is 90°, the upper reading is 10.20, the rod reading is 7.75 and the lower reading is 5.30. The best estimate for horizontal distance is: (a) 1020 ft; (b) 490 ft; (c) 245 ft; (d) if none of the preceding – provide your answer . From B the azimuth to A is 233° 15′ 30″. The angle right to C is 215° 05′ 15″. The azimuth of C to B is: (a)88°20’45”; (b) 268°20’45”; (c) 250°10’30”; (d) if none of the preceding – provide your answer. A five-level station is described as C3.5/34.1 C4.8/25.0 C6.7/0.0 C9.2/25.0 C10.8/33.6. How wide is the road? (a) 50.0 ft, (b) 67.7 ft, (c) 25.0 ft, (e) if none of the preceding – provide your answer . An engineer used a total station to complete a closed traverse at a construction site. The sum of LAT and sum of DEP were determined to be 0.04 and 0.07 respectively. The total horizontal distance measured 2510.00 ft. What is the corresponding precision? (a) 1/63000; (b) 1/36000; (c) 1/31000; (d) if none of the preceding-provide your answer. The interior angles of a closed six sided traverse measure: 34° 28′ 20″ 185° 37′ 00″ 110° 59′ 20″ 195° 10′ 40″ 81° 40′ 20″ 112° 05′ 20″ In adjusting this traverse, the adjusted value for the first angle is: (a) 34° 28′ 20″; (b) 34° 28′ 10″; ( c) 34° 28′ 30″; (d) if none of the preceding – provide your answer . 2. (15 pts) Given the position of points A and B, determine the azimuth of A to B to the nearest second. Point A 5470.00N 4710.00E Point B 5130.00N 5350.00E 3. (25 pts) The volume of a fill between station 24+00 and 26+00 on a 50-foot wide road is to be determined by the prismoidal method. The three level sections are given by: Stn. 24+00 F10.0 F12.0 F8.0 52.0 0.0 65.0 Stn. 25+00 F8.0 F10.0 F10.0 55.0 0.0 52.0 Stn. 26+00 F12.0 F8.0 F15.0 61.0 0.0 55.0 Determine the volume to the nearest 100 cubic feet. (All fill dimensions are in feet.) (Hint: The area at Stn. 25 is 760 sq ft and the area at Stn. 26 is 801.5 sq ft.) 4. (35 points) The following information was obtained from an angle-right traverse conducted on the surface with a total station (conventional practice for HI and HS, i.e. HS is above the target of interest and, therefore, indicated as negative in the notes): BS IS FS Angle Rt. Zenith Angle SD HI HS A B C 261°12’20” 97° 25’20” 355.33 4.99 -0.33 261°11’40” 262° 34’20” The position of B is N5000.00, E5000.00, El 5000.00. The azimuth of A to B is 49°18’30”. Determine the coordinates and elevation of C. Show and identify all intermediate calculations.
