Lab 1 Measurements and Error propagation
Abstract
In this lab session we did five experiments were we calculated the uncertainty percent, percent
difference and other measurement values like volume and radius. We first started by measuring the
circumferen
Lab 3 Free Fall, Choosing a Measurement Technique
In this lab we compared a human calculation of acceleration with that of a computer generated
calculation of acceleration, and then figured the percent error of each method. The first method
consisted of o

Abstract
In this experiment, we used the PASCO Motion Sensor to track the position of a
beach ball tossed above the sensor. This data was then used to plot a graph of the
position vs time as well as the velocit
