Date Due: September 14, 2009 2 ABSTRACT This was a very interesting first lab experiment. It enabled the students to use a micrometer and determine particular data associated with the experimental data. By using different micrometers and having different individuals perform the experiment, the experimental data was varied and produced the desired results. After compiling the data and performing a number of statistical analyses, students were able to conclude how human and instrumental error could contribute to the outcome of an experiment. OBJECTIVE 1. To enable students to use the micrometers. 2. To determine the arithmetic mean and standard deviation of the experimental data.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
