LAB REPORT FOR M0 EXPERIMENT: ERROR ANALYSIS VI-1: For this section of the lab we were to measure the time (in seconds) it took for a simple pendulum to complete 5 periods (from point A to point B then back to point A = 1 period). We were to record the time (in seconds) for 5 periods in a table (below) 10 times in total. Using EXCEL I found the avg. value it took for 1 period of the pendulum (T), as well as the standard deviation ( σ Τ 29 . T = (1.71 ± 0.05) sec VI-2: In this part of the experiment, using a meter stick we measured the elongation (X) of a spring as function of the mass hanging from its end. This is shown in the table below. X 1 represents the start distance with no mass attached and X 2 represents displacement based on the mass attached to the spring. These values can be subtracted to give us the formula for elongation which is (X) = X 1 – X 2 . Due to the fact that the mass and spring assembly move so easily it becomes difficult to read the meter stick precisely. Because of this difficulty we have chosen to read to the nearest mm.
