Unformatted text preview: 8 Chapt. 1 Quantities, Units, Conversions, Measurement, Significant Figures, and Uncertainties 001 qmult 01700 2 3 3 moderate math: FU friction coefficient 52. You have just calculated a coefficient of friction of 0 . 175 from a mass of 110 20 kg and a time of 2 . 7 . 3 s. Using the Montemayor fractional uncertainty method, calculate the uncertainty of the coefficient and write the coefficient and its uncertainty to correct significant figures. HINT: Calculated uncertainties can differ slightly depending on where you round off in the calculation. Allow for that. a) 0 . 175 . 03. b) 0 . 175 . 02. c) 0 . 18 . 03. d) 0 . 18 . 01. e) 0 . 2 . 03. 001 qmult 01800 2 3 4 moderate math: FU momentum 53. You have just calculated the magnitude of a linear momentum to be 6 . 01 kgm 2 s 2 from a mass of 3 . . 3 kg and speed of 2 . 00 . 03 ms 1 . Using the Montemayor fractional uncertainty method, calculate the uncertainty of the magnitude of linear momentum and write it and its...
