## What is meant by the Vernier constant is 0.01 cm?

The difference between one division of the Vernier scale and one division of the main scale is known as the Vernier constant.

Therefore, vernier constant 0.01 cm means, one smallest division of the main scale(1 mm) is 0.01 cm or 0.1 mm larger than one division of the vernier scale.

In this case, vernier scale has total 10 divisions.
