1. Draw a line segment AB of any length and mark a point P on it.
2. Taking P as centre and any radius draw two arcs one on left side of P and other on right side of P, which cut AB at Q and R.
3. Taking Q and R as a centre draw two arcs and let them intersect at S.
4. Join PS.
5. PS is the required perpendicular of AB.
