To determine how accurately the moment produced by a hydrostatic force in a labor- atory apparatus can be predicted using the equations of fluid statics. **Remember to use complete sentences and correct grammar for the worksheets also. To explore whether measure- ment uncertainty may be responsible for significant inaccuracies. 1/19/02 The equations of fluid statics are/are not accurate predictors of the moment produced by a hydrostatic force in a laboratory apparatus. --The bold/italicized portion is your conclusion, your results must back this up. List actual error range, or something similar, (%) to support conclusion- under 10%? Any differences between the actual error in partial vs. fully submerged

Unformatted text preview: cases? • List any trends that you notice in the actual error (you can separate into partial and fully, or as a whole). • Refer to spreadsheet (Table) and attach to further back up your conclusions. • Most of the inaccuracies present in the results may/may not be attributed to measurement uncertainty. • Is M m within the +/-dM p lines? If so, measurement uncertainty may be responsible for most of the inaccuracies. Refer to your graph (labeled!). • If not, what other errors may account for the inaccuracies? • Any difference between partial and fully submerged portions of the plot? • What is the range of propagated error? How does it compare to actual error? Refer to table. • Do you notice any trends in the propagated error? Dealing with ACTUAL ERROR! Dealing with PROPAGATED ERROR!...
