The laser is put on top of a couple textbooks which are on a table to ensure stability. I faced the laser towards a white board. I taped the slit image to the laser so that the produced image was steady. b. I used a tape measure to measure the distance from the double slit to the white board.

c. I taped a sheet of paper on the wall where the fringes were. I traced the image onto a blank sheet of paper and measured the distance from the tracing. 7. The percentage mean deviation of my measurements do not account for the experimental error because my percentage mean deviation is 1.94% and my experimental error is 3.87%. Since my experimental error is greater than my

    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.
