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
