Unformatted text preview: Fill in the blank columns in the table and on a separate sheet, determine V along with an error estimate using first a simple average and then a weighted average. For each case state the mean value, the standard deviation of the data, and the standard deviation of the mean. Show all your work (use no more automation than a hand calculator). 2) State at least two clear evidences from the data that there is some form of systematic error in the experiment. 3) It turns out that there is a 500 Ω resistance to the ammeter that was left out of the sketch. Assuming that you had guessed correctly that such a resistance might be the problem, how could you have determined this resistance value from the data (state the procedure)? 4) In view of the new theory, and assuming a 500 Ω resistance, now determine V along with an error estimate. 5) Keeping the assumption that V is a constant, compare the estimated and observed random errors in this experiment....
