Smiley 7. moved the object to the foreground to achieve the no oversqueezed look by the spindle 8. added threads on green dial and rachet to give it the rotating look 9. lock can be press on graphically 10. at the moment, the rachet can be compress by extra mm to demonstrate materials can be measured inaccuracy if over rotated by students against the anvil, which is somewhat inacurrate but i think there is educational value if the applet can over compress ? to get the correct measurement, drag on the slider for thimble made black object do not overlap the micrometer, suggested by Ered 12. made hint for zero error case make clear the impact of new calculation 13. re position (lower and in screen) the hint for the 0.00 mm for even measurements like 13.77 mm Thanks to Prof Hwang for sharing his original source codes, his passion for sharing knowledge and guidance .
