This is an example report. Do not use it as your report and do not use the data from this report. Comments in red are editorial in nature and intended to point out key aspects of the report. They do not need to be included in your reports. Please note that the actual assigned tasks in M0 may differ from this report (especially if you are not taking PHY- 151!!), as it is intended only as a guide to show what your reports should look like. Under no circumstances should you copy the data or the text contained here. LAB REPORT FOR M0 EXPERIMENT: ERROR ANALYSIS VI(1) In this experiment we measured 5 periods of a simple pendulum 10 times. Measurement 5 Periods (sec) 1 Period (sec) 1 8.88 1.776 2 8.84 1.768 3 8.90 1.780 4 8.66 1.732 5 8.69 1.738 6 8.65 1.730 7 8.75 1.750 8 8.66 1.732 9 8.71 1.742 10 8.66 1.732 1 Period Avg 1.748 sec 1 Period Std Dev. 0.0196 sec I calculated the average value of T and its standard deviation σ T using EXCEL T = (1.75 ± 0.02) sec Note that the uncertainty is specified to one significant figure, and that the smallest power of ten (e.g. 5 x 10 -2 or .05) is equal to the power of 10 of the uncertainty. The intermediate step of calculating the duration of 1 period has an extra significant digit because it is an intermediate step to calculating the average period. Placing a box around my answer removes any ambiguity about which digits are the answer, and which are intermediate.

    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.
