Introduction Random errors occur frequently when making measurements. In this lab, we will analyze the error in our voltage measurements to determine the impact of random errors on the accuracy of our data. III. Experimental Results To collect the data, we used a Zener diode, circuit board, power supply, battery, and Labview. We varied the voltage by switching among the Zener diode, battery, and random connections between the voltage ports on the circuit board, and we varied the resistance by connecting a random voltage to the LED. With each setup, we used Labview to measure the voltage and calculate the statistics.
