Unformatted text preview: Resonant circuits Grading Policy: Lab Reports: 10pts for labs 14 and 15pts for lab 5 + 2pts for prelab quiz Lowest score (lab+quiz) is dropped 3x(10+2)+(15+2)=36+17=53 Homework: Data Analysis Module (Lab “Zero”) 2pts 5 homeworks x 1 point =7 Final Exam: 15 pts Total: 75 pts Grade formula (tentative): A: >85%, B: >70 %, C: >55% Lab Coordinator: Andy Briggs Office Hours: Mondays, Wed, 1011AM in the Lab Reminders: 1.Come to lab section on time (Quizzes!) 2.Sign your data by TA before leaving 3.All reports are individual work! 4.Lab reports due prior to your next week ’ s lab session, no late reports will be accepted! Today ’ s Plan: • Review (brief) of the lecture 1 • Propagation of errors: Sum of two variables Addition of errors in quadrature Combination of sum/product General formula for error propagation Math You Should Know Handout: Please review, (available on webct) Rule for Stating Uncertainties: Experimental uncertainties should almost * always be rounded to one significant figure. *Exception: if uncertainty value starts with digit “ 1 ” , also keep the next significant figures Examples: x=37±3 mm (instead of x=37.86±3.42 mm) but I=8.3±1.2 A (rather than I=8±1 A) Rule #1: experimental uncertainties should almost always be rounded to one significant figure ....
