## Bowditch rule is applied to a closed traverse for adjustment of closing error.

Solution

Bowditch rule is also known as the compass rule, which is used when linear measurement and angular measurement both take equal degree of precision. It is applied to a closed traverse for adjustment of closing error. According to this method,

• Error in linear measurement is directly proportional to L.
• Error in angular measurement is inversely proportional to L.

Where, L: Length of line

Hence, the bowditch rule is applied to a closed traverse for adjustment of closing error.
