Give the new column an appropriate name (in both the “Name:” ﬁeld and the “Short Name:” ﬁeld) and enter an equation of the form Δ F = F 1F 2 to get the diﬀerence in forces measured by each force sensor. 10. Create a graph of force versus time showing the force from each sensor F 1 , F 2 and the diﬀerence Δ F . 11. Find the mean and standard deviation of the force diﬀerence by selecting “Statistics” from the “Analyze” menu. 12. Is the force diﬀerence Δ F equal to zero within the uncertainty? Report In addition to the standard elements of a well written lab report described in the introduction to this manual, your report must include: 1. Your plot of Applied force versus acceleration, showing the best ﬁt line. 2. For Newton’s third law experiment, your plot of the two forces from and their diﬀerence versus time 32...
