Expert Answer:

The following things should be kept in mind while measuring the length of any object:

 

  1. The object to be measured should be kept properly on the scale such that one of its end coincides with the zero (0) mark on the scale.
  2. The object to be measured should be kept parallel to the scale and touching it.

While taking the reading, the end of the object, the mark of the scale and your eyes should all be in a straight line perpendicular to the scale.
