Instructor's Manual to Physics Laboratory Manual
English | 2013 | ISBN: 1133950639 | PDF | pages: 393 | 11 mb


For this laboratory in particular it should be strongly emphasized that students read very carefully the General Laboratory Instructions section before reading the laboratory.   Throughout this laboratory manual repeated measurements are called for whenever it is feasible. This demonstrates to students the statistical nature of the measurement process. The main goal of this first laboratory is to introduce the idea that the mean of a set of measurements is the most probable value of the measured quantity, and the standard error is a measure of the precision of the results. In addition the concept of propagation of errors is presented. A distinction is made between the approximation to error propagation represented by the concept of significant figures and the more exact approach using the standard error of the measured quantity when it is known.
