## Micrometer - Pitch

It is defined as "the distance on the linear scale through which the circular scale moves during one revolution, either clockwise or anticlockwise".

It can be calculated by using the following relation

Pitch of the micrometer screwgauge = Distance on linear scale / One revolution

Pitch of the micrometer screwgauge = 1 mm / 1

Pitch of the micrometer screwgauge = 1mm
