Unformatted text preview: 2 fall within the range of your calculated g +/- g ? VI-3a: Answer this question as asked in the manual, but keep in mind that a simple yes or no is not sufficient. VI-3b: How do the departures of the points from the line compare to the standard deviations tabulated in VI-1? Recall that the standard deviations are a measure of the random error associated with your measurements. Are the departures from the line of about the same size as your standard deviations? VI-3c: No change from the manual. VI-4: Consider the results from part IV-C. Is there a difference in the times for the large and small balls to fall the same distance? Stated another way, the times for dropping the large ball represent a range of values from t t to t t + , and the same is true for the measured times when dropping the small ball: Do these two ranges of values overlap? If so, then there really is no difference between our measured values....
