Kevin Su Tues Lab Measurements and Error Analysis Introduction In this laboratory we learned how to set the measurements of the object, estimating the error propagation, and precision vs. accuracy and also we found the density of the mass. Method First we measure the copper rod with the caliper Second we measure the copper rod with the micrometer Third we put the copper rod on the weight balancer Data Trial  Calliper  Micrometer  Copper Rod  Weight Rod Length 1 .6 m 6.33 m  169.3 g 60 cm 2 .6 m 6.32 m 169.1 g 60 cm 3 .6 m 6.32 m 169 g 60 cm 4 .6 m 6.33 m 169 g 60 cm 5 .6 m 6.34 m 169 g 60 cm 6 .6 m 6.33 m 169.2 g 60 cm
