Page 2 of 8 Name: __________________________________ Problem 4 [3 points] In a measurement system, repeated measurements can be used to quantify random errors
provided that the unknown input is constant.
(a) True (b) False Problem 5 [3 points] In experimental analysis, a large number of repeated measurements of the unknown input is
taken under the same conditions. The standard deviation is an indication of how spread the
measurements around the mean.
Small standard deviation implies that the instrument used is accurate.

Problem 8 [10 points] A thermometer, initially at a temperature of 35°C, is suddenly immersed
at t = 0 in a tank of water with a temperature of 70°C. Assume that the thermometer has first
order dynamics with time constant τ = 0.5 sec.
