Unformatted text preview: to bobbing. However the error in the plastic cylinder calculation was most likely from the fact that the cylinder also bobbed during the calculation causing waves in the water and therefore more overflow. 2) As shown by the graphs trend line R^2 value, the best-fit line is extremely close to linear therefore verifying Stokes Law. The slope of the graph is 68720 and can be used to find the viscosity of the mineral oil by the equation: Where slope= 68720=...
