PHY 113 : Measurement of a Table Student’s name: Lab partners: Date of experiment: Section SLN: TA’S name: Abstract: Students in a lab group of five where handed wooden sticks at a length of 20cm, with these tools they were to measure the length (L) and width (W) of the lab table tops thirty times to each side. Once obtaining the thirty values by using one hand and eye sight, these values were then plugged into the computer program to compute the standard deviation of the assorted measurements of length and width of the counter top. Objective:

To understand how to compute standard deviation, and the mean value of the measurements, also the understanding of significant figures when computing mean values. Precent error also was an objective due to human error of eye balling our measurements. I. Procedure: Two wooden sticks (20 cm) in length each were used to measure the length and width of the lab table counter tops. The lab group appointed two students in the
