In the second set of data the average is the real number; what the diameter actually is. The meaning of the word differs because the first set of numbers is continuous where as the second set of numbers is discrete. b) The distribution for set #1 should not appear Gaussian because heights are continuous and there is not one set height that everyone should be. The distribution should be spread out and all over the place, which is represented in my results. c) Random errors effect Gaussian distribution because there are repetitions of
