1 pc = 3.08 x 1016 m
One parsec (pc) is the distance to a star that subtends and angle of 1 arc second at an arc length of 1 AU.
Parallax is “the best way to get distance in astronomy,” said Mark Reid, an astronomer at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. He described parallax as the “gold standard” for measuring stellar distances because it does not involve physics; rather, it relies solely on geometry.

The Vernier calliper is used to measure the length or thickness of an object with great accuracy. It was invented by Pierre Vernier in 1630. It can measure length less than 1 mm.
A Vernier calliper consists of a fixed main scale or ordinary scale, a sliding Vernier scale, movable jaws, and a tail.
Parts of a Vernier Calipers
Main Scale: The main scale consists of a steel metallic strip graduated in centimeters at one edge and in inches at the other edge . It consists of a fixed external jaw and a fixed internal jaw.
Vernier Scale: A vernier scale slides on the strip. It can be fixed in any position by the retainer. On the Vernier scale, 0.9 cm is divided into ten equal parts. It consisits of a fixed external jaw and a fixed internal jaw.
External Measuring Jaws: The outer measuring jaws (one of the main scale and the other of the vernier scale) helps to take the outer dimension of an object
Internal Measuring Jaws: The inner measuring jaws (one of the main scale and the other of the vernier scale) helps to take the inner dimension of an object.
Retainer: The retainer helps to retain the object within the jaws of the Vernier calipers to fix firmly.
Depth Measuring Strip: The depth measuring strip (prong) helps to measure the depth of an object.
Least Count: The smallest length that can be measured accurately with a device is called the least count of that device. The least count of a Vernier calliper is known as the Vernier constant.
The least count or the smallest reading which you can get with the instrument can be calculated as:
Least Count = One main scale division - one Vernier scale division ------------ (i)

The greenhouse effect is the trapping of the sun's heat in the atmosphere of a planet by gases in that atmosphere. The green house effect happens because of so-called greenhouse gases, which includes carbon dioxide, methane, water vapor & other. The greenhouse effect is hugely significant.
