Unformatted text preview: • Performing each of these collisions took many times to get correct data and to be able to find out whether energy and momentum were conserved on not on the two different types of collisions. Error Analysis: • With every calculation using uncertainties and sig figs, sometimes the data are not exactly right because of rounding and things to that sort. • Systematic errors can also be a possibility because of faulty equipment, calibrations, or the actual experimental design. • Also, every measurement used (especially time) could be subject to random error. • If the gliders are pushed too hard then they could possibly scrape the air track and mess up your time measurements....
