Description


Announcements

We will have a Quiz on Monday, May 13 that covers propagation of errors and a little statistics.  It will be worth 100 points (i.e. one lab.)

Lab Schedule

The last lab reports are due Wednesday May 15

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

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