Unformatted text preview: However, a few key errors occurred in only one direction and can therefore be classified as systematic. <br><br>First of all, the determination of when the indicator disk was within the indicator bracket was always quite subjective. However, since we were looking down at the indicator disk, we almost always got results that favored more force than what was actually being applied to the rotational mass. Secondly, we viewed the rotational mass from the right side for most of the experiment and therefore, the distance between the rotational mass and the poles was smaller than was actually measured during the experiment. Other errors along those lines existed, but these two were by far the most significant in this experiment. Embellished...
