CE 321 – Spring 2008 : LAB FINAL REVIEW SHEET ERROR AND UNCERTAINTY: • Know the propagated error equations used in lab. • Know the difference between propagated and actual error. • Know the difference between absolute and relative error. • Know how to calculate all of the above given a set of data. LAB #1: Fluid Statics • Have a general overview of what the lab was trying to accomplish and understand the principles at work. • Be able to draw and label the hydrostatic pressure apparatus and the pressure distribution caused by the water for each situation encountered in this lab. LAB #2: Flow rate measurement • Know that Q = V/t (where V=Volume). Be able to calculate Q from V and t data. • Understand the concept of standard deviation and what it represents and what we use it for. • Be able to determine dQ/Q (be sure you know the equation, including all the variables, and how to apply it). • Know what the least count is.
