Bria Hitchens Partners: Emily Johnson and Rachel Morley Date: September 14, 2020 PHYS 2108 ; Section 19 Lab 2 Purpose: Becoming familiar with measuring data, using units correctly and learning how to use functions in Excel. Procedure: Use, analyze and compare data in the different tables. We used Excel to calculate Mean and Standard Deviation from data points we were given. Use given formulas to calculate volume, weight and weight density. Analysis Data Table 1: Measuring the Lab Tables Measuring Using Short Meter Stick Measuring Using Long Meter Stick Meas.
