    ~micrometer for measuring diameters and vernier for inside outside diameter as well as depth.
    ~A typical micrometer screw guage has a maximum accuracy of +or-0.0005mm(0.01mm)reading whereas a veriner caliper has a typical maximum accuracy of +or-0.05mm(0.1mm) reading.

    Hi Chethan,

    A typical micrometer screw gauge has a maximum accuracy of ±0.005 mm (0.01 mm readings) whereas a venier caliper has a typical maximum accuracy of ±0.05 mm (0.1 mm readings). Of course, different versions might have better or worse accuracies. They are also used differently because of their different shapes and forms.

    And these websites will also help you.
