To determine the dimensions using a scale bar, you need to measure the length of the scale bar on the map or drawing and then convert that measurement to the actual distance it represents.

For example, if the scale bar on the map is 3 cm long and represents a distance of 3 meters, you can calculate the scale factor by dividing the length of the scale bar on the map by the actual distance it represents:

Scale factor = Length of scale bar on map / Actual distance represented

Scale factor = 3 cm / 3 m = 1 cm/m

Once you have the scale factor, you can use it to determine the dimensions of other features on the map. For example, if a building on the map measures 6 cm in length, you can calculate its actual length by multiplying the measurement on the map by the scale factor:

Actual length = Measurement on map x Scale factor

Actual length = 6 cm x 1 cm/m = 6 meters

Therefore, the actual length of the building is 6 meters.

1.

Scale Ratio = 3m / 1km = 1 / 333,333

2.

Real Distance = 5cm - 333,333 = 1.667km

3.

Building Length (Real) = 7cm - 333,333 = 2.33m
