PC1221 Fundamentals of Physics I Simple Measurements 1 Objective Demonstrate the specific knowledge gained by repeated physical measurements. Apply the statistical concepts of mean, standard deviation from the mean and standard error to these measurements. Demonstrate propagation of uncertainties by determining the uncertainty in the calcu- lated quantities from the measured quantities. Demonstrate the method of linear least square fit by determining a value of the mathe- matical constant π from measured diameters and circumferences of circles. 2 Equipment Measuring tape Digital vernier caliper Digital balance Stopwatch Pendulum Circles set 3 Theory You are referred to the relevant sections in the laboratory handout “Measurements and Data Analysis” for theoretical aspects on uncertainties in measurements.
