Motion in Two Dimensions
Introduction
In this Laboratory you will explore the insight of Descartes that space can be described
as having three dimensions. Newton added the understanding that forces and cons

Precision Estimates
Introduction
Physics is sometimes called an exact science. But this does not mean that the numerical
uncertainties in measured quantities, or even in the laws of physics, are vanishingly

Polynomial Regression
In this technical Appendix we sketch the formalism used in the polynomial regression method
for tting data. This is a generalization of the method of linear regression.
