when torquing down a head , modern figures in angles of rotaton

the initial tension is in nm to ensure that every stud is even then an angle meter is placed on the stud and the head is turned the set degrees ( in this case 90 degrees)

With tension wrenches there is a great variation in actual tension of the bolts and the angle method is more accurate

You should be aware that the adjective **adjacent** has no absolute meaning. It is relative to the angle you are considering.

Let some angle A in a right triangle. Let H be the measure of the hypotenuse. Do not confuse it with some height.

cos(A)=(measure of leg adjacent to A)/H

H= (measure of leg adjacent to A) / cos(A)

However what you call the opposite angle (the other angle I presume), is the complementary of of angle A. Call it angle B

In terms of that second angle

**H=(measure of leg adjacent to A)/ sin(B)**

What is adjacent to angle A is opposite to the complementary of A.

I think you should work a little more on the meaning of the words**adjacent **and **opposite** until you understand that they are relative concepts. **They mean nothing until you spell out what angle you are looking at. **Without proper understanding of these two concepts you will not be able to use correctly that mnemonic device which you have mangled (BTW)

I do not know it what language you have transcribed the mnemonic , but in English the device is called**SOH- CAH-TOA **

**SOH** means: To calculate the **Sine of an angle** divide the measure of the leg **Opposite to the angle** by the measure of the **H**ypotenuse.

**CAH** means: To calculate the **Cosine of an angle **divide the measure of the **side Adjacent to the angle **by the measure of the **Hypotenuse.**

**TOA **means: To calculate the **Tangent of an angle **divide the measure of the side **Opposite to the angle** by the measure of the side **Adjacent to the angle**.

Let some angle A in a right triangle. Let H be the measure of the hypotenuse. Do not confuse it with some height.

cos(A)=(measure of leg adjacent to A)/H

H= (measure of leg adjacent to A) / cos(A)

I dont have a solution but i do have the same problem. Step 7 says stuff about string for sails after building a boat....?? I was okay until step 9 because the diagram didnt say where to put it.

Could you mean a sextant? I found other tools of measuring angles at a

distance before I reread your question and noticed it was under

science and astronomy. Most of the following tools are used to measure

angles of stars, planets and locations.

Sextant

=======

"A sextant is a measuring instrument used to measure the angle of

elevation of a celestial object above the horizon. Making this

measurement is known as sighting the object or taking a sight. The

angle, and the time when it was measured, are used to calculate a

position line on a nautical or aeronautical chart. A common use of the

sextant is to sight the sun at noon to find one's latitude. See

celestial navigation for more discussion.

The scale of a sextant has a length of 1/6 of a full circle; 60°,

hence the sextant's name. An octant is a similar device with a shorter

scale, 1/8 of a circle; 45°, which was in use until 1767 when it was

quickly replaced by the sextant. In 1767 the first edition of the

nautical almanac tabulated lunar distances, enabling navigators to

find the current time from the angle between the sun and the moon.

This angle is however sometimes larger than 90°, and thus not possible

to measure with an octant."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sextant

"Practical celestial navigation usually requires a chronometer to

measure time, a sextant to measure the angles, an almanac giving

angular schedules of celestial objects and a set of sight reduction

tables to help perform the math. With sight reduction tables, the only

math required is addition and subtraction. Most people can master the

procedure after a day or two of instruction and practice."

An angle gauge?

===============

"The gauge is used to tally trees in variable area plot sampling. The

variable plot method is generally faster than fixed area plot

sampling. The gauge usually has basal area per acre factors (BAF) of

5 to 40. The average diameter of the trees to be sampled is what

determines which BAF to use. The angle gauge comes in several shapes

and serves the same purpose as a cruising prism (see cruising prism

below). 2004 price range: $10-$33."

http://ext.nrs.wsu.edu/handtools/tools/measurements/#clin

A clinometer?

=============

"Optical Reading Clinometer

Model No. PM-5/360 PC

Measures:Altitude angle/Percent slope

Heavy-duty clinometer for measuring vertical angles. Clinometer has

two scales: angle in degrees above or below horizontally level or

percent slope. Sighting allows user to simultaneously view object and

read slope."

"Measuring with a Clinometer

A clinometer is a tool that can help you to measure the angular height

of the Moon more accurately than with your fists."

http://www.learner.org/channel/workshops/lala/moonjactivities.html

A protractor?

=============

"Use tape to hinge two rulers together end to end at a 90

degree angle. Hold one ruler so that it points straight out

to the horizon and the other one points to the straight up

to the zenith. Tape a protractor to the rulers so that the

base is on the horizon line and the zenith line cuts the 90

degree mark.

To determine the altitude of the North Star where you live,

hold the rulers horizontally at eye level. Look at the North

Star and move the ruler to point at it.

The number of degrees or altitude of the North Star can be

read on the protractor."

http://spikesworld.spike-jamie.com/science/astronomy/c421-03.html

A transit?

==========

"These units are for the serious builder or contractor who requires

greater accuracy. These instruments are designed with a heavy-duty

dome shaped head that holds a double ball bearing center, giving the

user 5 minute readouts. Model 300B has a 1° vertical arc and two

leveling vials. Units use a 3-1/2 x 8 thread."

http://historywired.si.edu/object.cfm?ID=186

http://www.contractor-books.com/CB/Optical_Levels/Optical_Levels.htm?source=google

"Set up for the class five angle measuring exercises. Get each

participant to measure each angle. Rule out any clearly wrong

measurments; average the remainder. Now score each participant on how

little his/ her readings vary from the class's average.

An alternative test for your transit is to go to a large field. Along

one edge, mark perhaps 5 locations all in a straight line, perhaps 50

feet apart. (Use a longer distance if you can measure it accurately,

and space allows. (You can see they are in line by looking along it!)

About 150 feet from the baseline, at a point perpendicular to it's

middle, stick a pole in the ground. (The location does not have to be

precise.) Now measure angles between the baseline and the pole at each

of your locations. Next, prepare a map of what you have measured.

Start by drawing a line on a piece of paper. Mark 5 evenly spaced

points along it. Draw the angles you recorded. The lines going away

from the baseline should all met at one point if your readings are

accurate.

Remember: Any measuring device must be able to return the same reading

every time it measures the same angle, weight, length, etc. It must

give the answer in usable units.

With the transit, a major element in achieving success will be your

skill in devising something that will allow you to point directly at

the distant objects which define the direction of the two arms of the

angle.

How you read off how far around your pointer has swung will be another

critical area."

You did not mention the brand or model of your gun, however, you can determine the angle needed by placing a straight edge in line with the path of the driver and measure the angle from this edge to rails.. If the straight edge to the rails measure 90 degrees or makes a right angle, you need "0 degree" nails, if it measures 80 degrees, you need "15 degree" etc. Most generic nials 15 gauge nails will work. No need to by branded nails unless your gun requires an unusual angle. Good luck.

cut 4 pieces of 2x2 to1.5 inches short of 2 metres. lay them out end to end to form a two metre box. it can only work one way. then take string from corner to corner to find the center, making a crosshair. then stand a level rod at the centre to the desired height and fasten equal length lines from each corner to the peak. using a compound mitre saw, place an angle finder at the bottom and top corners to give you the angle to cut your piece with the saw set at 45 degrees, to give you your compound miter for the top. just set the saw blade to line up with the angle finder to get the bottom cut. the length of your "tight" string line frome corner to peak is your length of "hip" piece
