My Schedule


Description


Announcements

I would like to discuss what I am looking for in the lab reports on labs 2-5, the ones “due” Wednesday.  As a result you can turn them in on Monday, September 25 instead of on Wednesday the 20th. 

Lab Schedule

You should be familiar with the error analysis used in General Physics.  If you need a refresher, see Simple Error Analysis.

   A more thorough discussing of the theory of errors is in ERRORS
