Therefore,
447
286.1
– 1 = 0.5624
must equal an odd integer (2
n
+ 1) divided by a squared
integer (
n
2
).
That is, multiplying 0.5624 by a square (such as 1, 4, 9, 16, etc) should give
us a number very close (within experimental uncertainty) to an odd number (1, 3, 5, …).
Trying this out in succession (starting with multiplication by 1, then by 4, …), we find
that multiplication by 16 gives a value very close to 9; we conclude
n
= 4 (so
n
2
= 16 and
2
n
+ 1 = 9).
Plugging
m
= 0.447 kg,
n
= 4, and the other values given in the problem, we
find
μ
= 0.000845 kg/m = 0.845 g/m.
