This is an example report. Do not use it as your report and do not use the data from this report. Comments in red are editorial in nature and intended to point out key aspects of the report. They do not need to be included in your reports. Please note that the actual assigned tasks in M0 may differ from this report (especially if you are not taking PHY- 151!!), as it is intended only as a guide to show what your reports should look like. Under no circumstances should you copy the data or the text contained here. LAB REPORT FOR M0 EXPERIMENT: ERROR ANALYSIS VI(1) In this experiment we measured 5 periods of a simple pendulum 10 times. Measurement 5 Periods (sec) 1 Period (sec) 1 8.88 1.776 2 8.84 1.768 3 8.90 1.780 4 8.66 1.732 5 8.69 1.738 6 8.65 1.730 7 8.75 1.750 8 8.66 1.732 9 8.71 1.742 10 8.66 1.732 1 Period Avg 1.748 sec 1 Period Std Dev. 0.0196 sec I calculated the average value of T and its standard deviation σ T using EXCEL T = (1.75 ± 0.02) sec Note that the uncertainty is specified to one significant figure, and that the smallest power of ten (e.g. 5 x 10 -2 or .05) is equal to the power of 10 of the uncertainty. The intermediate step of calculating the duration of 1 period has an extra significant digit because it is an intermediate step to calculating the average period. Placing a box around my answer removes any ambiguity about which digits are the answer, and which are intermediate.
