Unformatted text preview: ENGR 201, Spring 2010 Homework Week 1 A. A temperature probe is used to measure the temperature in an experiment. Before using the probe in the experiment, a calibration curve is needed to ensure the correct value to within the instrument accuracy. Using known temperature sources to calibrate the temperature probe, the following measurement results over multiple trials were conducted: 1. Determine the best ­fit calibration line of the data. Display the results graphically, as well as the calibration equation. 2. What is the overall static sensitivity of the temperature measurement system? 3. Determine the accuracy limits of the temperature probe 4. Determine the systematic error of the probe 5. How could the systematic error estimation be improved? B. Consider text problems: 1.2, 1.3, 1.8 (a&b), 1.12, 1.19 ...
