Unformatted text preview: Brandon Magalhaes UTEID – bam2734 Partner: Hang-Yang Experiment 1: Random Motions I ntroduction – The purpose of this lab is to determine, if through the experiment of dropping marbles down a board of nails, we can fit a statistically calculated curve to our end results. This is because we will be analyzing random motion, which makes it impractical to determine where the ball will end up. In order to make up for the inability to determine the outcome, we will use the probability curve to establish where the ball will finish within a small interval. In the case of our experiment we will see how closely a Gaussian probability distribution, or normal distribution, matches our data, which if measured correctly, should roughly fit the curve. Conclusion – For this lab we tested how the results of our marbles being dropped down an inclined board of nails matched up against a Gaussian probability distribution to see that it fit quite nicely for the amount of measurements we took....
