Student’s Name: Eric Peckham Partner’s Name: Joel Jueckstock Greg Haack Instructor’s Name (TA): Yunter He Experiment Title: Pendulum and Spring evaluation Objectives: I. Establish an understanding of averages and standard deviations of measurements, such as the ones used in the period of a pendulum. II. Use excel to figure out the slope of a line in order to figure out the spring constant k. This is all done using the measurements obtained from the spring in lab. III. Realize what error propagation is. IV. Practice with excel, by making graphs and tables.

Unformatted text preview: room and what the spring constant was in our spring. We did all of this by using a pendulum to figure out what the gravity was in the room. We also figured out the error propagation for the spring constant, the period for the pendulum, the slope, and the intercept. We also did all of this by using excel to figure out slope, intercept, and uncertainty of slope and intercept also average and standard deviation of the pendulum. So therefore we accomplished all of the objectives....
