### Accuracy of Vernier Calipers

Accuracy of a vernier caliper depends upon the least count of the vernier. It is the smallest division which can be measured measured using vernier. When you measure an object using vernier calipers the resultant reading is the sum of main scale reading plus the vernier scale reading. Hence the accuracy of a vernier calipers mainly depends upon the least count of a vernier scale.

A vernier scale is an additional scale which allows a distance or angle measurement to be read more precisely than directly reading a uniformly-divided straight or circular measurement scale. It is a sliding secondary scale that is used to indicate where the measurement lies when it is in between two of the marks on the main scale.

That was a simple definition of accuracy given. I would suggest that you include information about the accuracies about other devices also so that readers can compare them.
