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
