Unformatted text preview: the angle gives you the resultant. Which method do you think would get a greater error? I feel that the graphical method would get more of an error is the graphical method, because using the graphical method contains no mathematical equations, and it only involves drawing lines. This creates a greater chance of human error, in both the drawing of the lines, and the interpolation of the data from the graph. Conclusion: In conclusion the two methods can be used to find the equilibrium force. These methods produced very small percent errors. The percent error was only .4247%, with a possible source of error being that we did not use the string that was originally designed for this experiment. Instead we used a more dense string, which might have caused the small source of error that is evident in our percent error....
