Problem 1.45 [Difficulty: 3] Given: Nominal mass flow rate of water determined by collecting discharge (in a beaker) over a timed interval is & m g s = 100 ; Scales have capacity of 1 kg, with least count of 1 g; Timer has least count of 0.1 s; Beakers with volume of 100, 500, 1000 mL are available – tare mass of 1000 mL beaker is 500 g. Find: Estimate (a) time intervals, and (b) uncertainties, in measuring mass flow rate from using each of the three beakers. Solution: To estimate time intervals assume beaker is filled to maximum volume in case of 100 and 500 mL beakers and to maximum allowable mass of water (500 g) in case of 1000 mL beaker. Then & & & m = m t and t m m m ∆∀ = = ρ Tabulating results ∆∀ = = 100 500 1000 1 5 mL mL mL t s s 5 s Apply the methodology of uncertainty analysis, Appendix E. Computing equation: 2 1 2 2 + ± = t m m u t m m t u m m m m u & & & & & The uncertainties are ± half the least counts of the measuring instruments:

### What students are saying

• 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.
