Unformatted text preview: many times you dropped the marbles the results led to a Gaussian distribution. For example if you look at the combination of the 2 large marble trials, which is the 257 marble data you can see that the Gaussian distribution is centered between 0 and 1. The steel marble distribution is centered between -1 and 1, which is an ideal Gaussian distribution. Thus from these results we can see that random events form Gaussian distributions. Some of the errors that I encountered during this experiment were: we accidentally had 7 more trials on the steel marbles and some of the marbles did not drop down the chute because they bounced out of the chute and went around....
