Andrew Whitlock 10/09/07 Experiment 3 Conclusions Describe 2 things you did to make sure your equipment was working. One thing we did to make sure our equipment was working was check to make sure the magnets still had a strong electromagnetic field. To do this we placed them on metal objects and observed if they held. We did this because the magnets were a crucial part of the experiment, if magnets with below par fields were used our data would be skewed and unreliable. Another thing we did to make sure our equipment was working was to check the hose on the air track for holes. To do this we visually observed the hose and listened for leaks. The reason we did this was to give the air track the least amount of friction in order to rule out these as results of the magnets strength. Describe 3 things you did to reduce the amount of error in your data (that is not mentioned in your lab manual). To reduce the amount of error in our data we did many things, one being to check the magnets and make sure they were same type. We did this by visual inspection and by comparing the values for their mass on

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
