Unformatted text preview: David O'Brien Section : 0106 Experiment #1 1. f=ab df/da = 1 and df/db = 1 f = [(df/da*a)2 + (df/db*b)2]1/2 = sqrt(.52 + .52)=.7071 error = .2 +/ .7071 f=a/b f = [1*(.5/11.5)2 + 1*(.5/11.3)2]1/2 = .0631 11.5/11.3 = 1.018 1.018 +/ .0631 2. (11.0+11.4+11.2+11.3) / 4 = 11.3 Standard Deviation: [1/(41) (Xi<X>)2]1/2 =0.2 11.3sec +/ 0.2sec 3. The student either made an illegitimate error in calculating X2/v or has overestimated the size of the errors and needs to go back and get more accurate estimate of the errors. ...
