Unformatted text preview: values and standard deviations as error bars on the graphs. 2. Include on these plots the expected beam behavior, with uncertainty shown as dashed lines. Include example calculations that show the values of any variables used in the calculations (e.g. width of the beam, modulus of elasticity, etc.). 3. Generate a table that quantitatively compares the measured and expected strain values. IV. ANALYSIS Interpret the results. Compare measured results with expected results. Analyze any discrepancies. 1. Critically compare the measured and calculated values, and conclude whether they agree or not. 2. List possible reasons for discrepancies, and what you would do to evaluate those reasons. 3. Decide whether or not elementary beam theory works in this situation. V. CONCLUSIONS List without elaboration the conclusions that are supported by the results of the experiment....
