EXPERIMENT M0 (page 1) Error Analysis In this lab you will accomplish the following tasks: Measure the period of a simple pendulum 10 times Calculate the average value of the pendulum period Calculate the standard deviation of the pendulum period Measure the elongation of a spring as function of the mass hanging from the end of the spring Plot versus . The points should fall on a straight line From the slope of the line you will determine the spring constant T T T σ x m x k m

A B Va. Measure the duration of 5 periods (full oscillations) From that determine the period T ten times 12 1 0 ... Average value: 10 TT T T ++ + = () 22 2 1 0 The standard deviation measures the spread of the values of T around the average value T. It is give by the equation: ... 10 1 T T T T T σ −+ +− = 1 T(s) 5T(s) # 10 . . . 3 (page 2) 5T
