Unformatted text preview: Experiment #1: Statistical Analysis of Experimental Data-Length Dimension Measurement by Micrometer College of Engineering Dept. of Mechanical Engineering Justin Bostic MCEG 3011 Measurements & Instrumentation Lab Instructor: Dr. Harby Date Performed: September 7, 2009 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....
