Staple this to the Lab Exercise for the lab, and hand it in at the beginning of your next lab meeting. 1. Consider the fractional or relative uncertainty ( δ k/k) for the rubber band and the spring, and discuss what the values imply. (Include a statement about whether the rubber band and/or spring obey Hooke’s Law).   You can also describe the plots and the fits of the data in your argument. For this experiment we calculated “k” for a spring and a rubber band. For the spring, we found k sp = 9.5 N/m and the δ k sp = 0.1 N/m. For the rubber band we found k rb = 10 N/m and the δ k rb = 1 N/m. The rubber band has a relatively high uncertainty. This implies that the k rb was not constant for the most part. This allows us to conclude that the rubber band

    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.
