When torqueing the head,what's meant by 90deg in stage 2 3 etc.i understand value eg 25nm then 35nm then say 50nm

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

How do you use CHASHOTAO to calculate the Hypotinus given the adjasent length and opposite angle

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 Hypotenuse.

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.

It is a device used in measuring and sometimes drawing angles?based on trigonometry

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.

"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."

"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."

Froogle has many sextants and books for sale:

Using the sextant

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."

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."

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."

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."

"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

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

How you read off how far around your pointer has swung will be another
critical area."

What is the angle of the 15 gauge nails for this gun and what nails are compatable

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.

How to build a wooden pyramid frame for school children, 2metres on each length of base.

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
