Unformatted text preview: by estimating the range of possible values for the numbers of lines visible when calculating m. VI-3: Tabulate the data of step V-3. Add columns for 1/o and 1/i. Using Excel, plot 1/i vs 1/o. From the LINEST function, determine the intercept and the uncertainty in the intercept. Now determine the focal length (and its uncertainty) of the lens combination and report this in the form f f σ ± . Calculate the expected value (eqt. 8) and compare it to the experimental value. Does the expected value fall into the range determined by f f ± ? VI-4: Use equation 9 to calculate the expected value for magnification, |m|, for the data taken in step V-4. Compare the calculated and experimental values. Estimate the uncertainty in your measured values. VII Questions No change from the manual....
