Purpose The purpose of this lab was to learn about uncertainty and the propagation of error in an experiment. We also learned how to use the computer software to record and analyze the data in several ways as well as how to generate a hard-copy of the data. Theory The slope of a line at a point in time is given by the following equation: Slope = ∆T/∆t Where T is the temperature with units of Celsius and t is the time with units of seconds. Procedure We began the experiment by turning on the laptop computer and loading up the software that measures temperature. We also plugged in the temperature gauge to the computer and did a test reading to make sure it could measure the air temperature correctly. When we had a test reading done, we began a new reading to obtain our temperatures for the analysis part of the experiment. We started the first three seconds

    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.
