MTS 723 Assumptions 2 Numerical Analysis The result of an experiment is dependent on the experimental parameters in a defined way. The errors in an experiment are “well - behaved”. Repeating an experiment with the exact same conditions will lead to exactly the same result (within the confines of quantum mechanics and the errors in the system).

    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.
