PHYS 2108 Section 5 Lauren Becnel Partner: Cody Johnson Title: Measurement of mass, length and time, Part B Purpose: To use the quantities like length, width, and mass to calculate other values that are physically relevant like area, volume, and density and to propagate the error in our measurements when using them to calculate new quantities. Procedures: Step 1: 1. Calculate the weight of the metal cylinder and its uncertainty a. CALCULATION SHOWN ON LOOSELEAF 2. Calculate the absolute uncertainty of the weight of the cylinder and correctly report the weight of the cylinder a. CALCULATION SHOWN ON LOOSELEAF 3. Repeat the process for the weight of the red cylinder and the weight of the plastic object a. CALCULATION SHOWN ON LOOSELEAF Step 2: 1. Calculate the area of the table and its uncertainty a. CALCULATION SHOWN ON LOOSELEAF 2. Find the absolute uncertainty in area by multiplying the result for the fractional uncertainty from the area equation by your computed area a. CALCULATION SHOWN ON LOOSELEAF Step 3:
