Measurement Uncertainties
Introduction
We all intuitively know that no experimental measurement can be perfect. It is possible to
make this idea quantitative. It can be stated this way: the result of an individual
measurement of some quantity is

1. A certain device has made 9 measurements of the acceleration of gravity in units of
m/s2, x: 8.69, 9.95, 10.60, 9.88, 8.85, 10.31, 9.52, 9.29 and 10.65. Compute the
average and x. Finally compute the rms average deviation.

Introduction:
The purpose of this experiment was to prove that acceleration was constant due to
gravity, the calculated resulting acceleration and velocity were calculated from dropping the ball.

Introduction
This experiment is designed to demonstrate how to scientifically handle repetitive measurements
while studying the motion of an object that is accelerated by the force of gravity. It also serves as
an introduction to the da
