Unformatted text preview: & The uncertainties are expected to be half the least counts of the measuring instruments. Tabulating results: Time Interval, t (s) Error in t (s) Uncertainty in t (%) Water Collected, m (kg) Error in m (kg) Uncertainty in m (%) Uncertainty in m & (%) 10 0.10 1.0 2.0 0.025 1.25 1.60 60 0.10 0.167 12.0 0.025 0.208 0.267 A time interval of about 15 seconds should be chosen to reduce the uncertainty in results to 1 percent....
