Unformatted text preview: So I think it is safe to say that my angular momentum was really close to being conserved, but since the line didn’t go through every point, it wasn’t conserved. • Since there is still a tiny bit of friction between the puck and the table, you can tell from the graph of why it slowly decreases and therefore reducing the amount of area swept out. 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 could be subject to random error. • The different ways that everyone used to find out the uncertainties of the areas are going to differ and therefore there is always going to be an error....
