Lab Report 2 Introduction The objective of this lab is to practice calculating error propagation. This will be done using the data obtained from measuring the dimensions of various objects. A crucial formula for determining error propagation will also be understood. Materials Rectangular prism Triangular prism Bullet-shaped object Hollow Cylinder Plastic Cup Transparent rectangular prism Water Vernier caliper Procedure 1. Using the Vernier caliper, measure the length, width, and height of the rectangular prism. Measure each dimension 5 times, and record the data. 2. Measure the base, height, and depth of the triangular prism 5 times and record. 3. Measure the diameter and height of the bullet (up to the point where the bullet transitions from a cylinder to a half sphere. Repeat 5 times, recording the data. 4. Measure the total diameter, inner diameter, and height of the hollow cylinder 5 times and record. 5. Fill up the plastic cup completely with water.
