TO DRAW A PLOT OF THIS FIELD, ACCORDING TO THE PRE

CEDING RULES.

Having drawn the side A B, according to the directions before given for laying off the first course and distance, compare the first and second courses together, and they will be found to be both north and both east; consequently, the an. gle between them is found by RULE 4, as follows: 16° 30' the less course, and 98°, the supplement of the greater, being added, the sum is 114° 30', for the angle at B. Compare the second and third courses, and they will be found to be one north and one south, and both east ; consequently, according to RULE 2, 82', the second course, added to 17°, the third course, the sum 999, is the angle at C. The third and fourth courses are both south, and one east and the other west. The angle between them at D is 126°; for 17°, the third course added to 37°, the fourth course, is 54°, which substracted from 180°, leaves 126°, according to Rule 3. The fourth and fifth courses are one south and the other north, and both west. According to RULE 2, 27°, the fourth course, added to 499, the fifth course, the sum 86°, is the angle at E.

A little practice will render this mode of protracting a field familiar and easy, and an attention to the courses will show in what direction the angle is to be made.

CASE. V.

WITHIN THE FIELD, FROM WHICH THE SEVERAL ANGLES MAY BE SEEN.

Take the bearing of the angles, and measure their distance from the station. FIELD BOOK. See Fig. 56.

[merged small][merged small][ocr errors][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small]

Draw a meridian line as N. S. From some point in that line as a centre, lay off the bearing and distance to the several angles, and draw lines from one angle to another, as AB, BC, CD, &c.

TO FIND THE AREA.

The area may be calculated according to ProB. XII. by measuring diagonals and perpendiculars; or more accurately according to Prob. IX. Rule 4.

As the bearing and distance of the lines from the station to the several angles are known, two sides and their contained angle are given in each of the triangles into which the plot is divided; the area may, therefore, be readily calculated by the RULE above referred to.

NOTE. As in the operation, the logarithm of radius is to be substract

ed from the sum of the other logarithms, it may be done by rejecting the left hand figure, without the trouble of putting down
