Unformatted text preview: y-component: _______________ ± ______________ meters z-component: _______________ ± ______________ meters Now calculate the magnitude of the displacement vector and its uncertainty, using the information recorded above. Magnitude of displacement: ± meters When you have computed the magnitude of your displacement vector from the components, use a piece of string to measure the actual distance between your set of points. Distance between points: ± meters Is your result the same as the length of string to within the uncertainty? Suppose we now add all the displacement vectors from all of the tables. What should be the result of this vector sum, if we have done it right? 17 Week #2...
