MAE 3800 Instrumentation and Measurements Laboratory Problem Set #2 Due: Tuesday, March 16 Problem 1 (10 points) (Prob. 3.22 of the textbook) The manufacturer of inexpensive outdoor thermometers checks a sample of nine against a o 68 F standard. The following results were obtained: 68.5 67.5 67 69 68 67 67.5 69 69. Using the Student’s t-test, calculate the range within which the population mean may be expected to exist with a confidence level of 95%. Problem 2 (10 points) (Prob. 3.3 of the textbook) a . A 68-k resistor is paralleled with a 12-k resistor. Each resistor has a % 10 ± tolerance. What will be the nominal resistance and the uncertainty of the combination? b . If the values remain the same except that the tolerance on the 68-k resistor is dropped to % 5 ± , what will be the uncertainty of the combination? Problem 3 (10 points) (Prob. 3.12 of the textbook) A cantilever beam of circular section has a length of 6 ft and a diameter of 2

Unformatted text preview: 2 1 in. A concentrated load of 350lbf is applied at the beam end, perpendicular to the length of the beam. If the uncertainty in the length is 5 . 1 ± in., in the diameter is 08 . ± in., and in the force is 5 ± lbf, what is the uncertainty in the calculated maximum bending stress? Problem 4 (10 points) (Prob. 3.38 of the textbook) The force-deflection data for a spring are tabulated below. Determine a least squares fit. Deflection, in.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
