VI-1Diameter of bob using ruler: d = 2.30 cm. 2.50 cm, 2.60 cm The range of values measured is maximum - minimum = 2.60 cm -2.30 cm = 0.3 cm or 3.0 mm. Diameter of bob using caliper: d = 2.54 cm, 2.55 cm, 2.53 cm. The range of values measured is maximum - minimum = 2.55 cm -2.53 cm = 0.02 cm or 0.2 mm. Measurements taken using the caliper has a range that is a factor of 15 smaller than the ruler. Hence the precision of the caliper is greater than that of the ruler.Thickness of 100 g mass using a ruler: t = 0.90 cm, 0.95 cm, 0.90 cm. The range is 0.05 cm/0.5mmThe thickness of the mass as measured by the caliper: t = 0.91 cm, 0.92 cm, 0.91 cm. The range is 0.01 cm or 0.1 mmEven in this instance the caliper is more precise as the range of measured values is still a fifth of that of the ruler. However in this instance the the difference is only 5x rather than the 15x of that for the pendulum bob.The range of values for the ruler measurement of the pendulum bob is 3 times larger than the range of values for the ruler measurement of the 100g mass. This is due to several things. The mass is narrower meaning that there is less chance for parallax error. The mass has two flat edges that you are measuring the distance between while the bob diameter changed depending on where you measure.Do At Home (1)Diameter of mug (sideway view): Left side (cm) Right side (cm) Total (cm)0.0 8.1 8.10.1 8.0 7.90.0 8.2 8.2Ranged of measured value is max – min : 8.2-7.9 = 0.3 cm or 3 mmDiameter of mug (vertical view): Left side (cm) Right side (cm) Total (cm)0.0 8.1 8.10.0 8.2 8.20.0 8.2 8.2Ranged of measured value is max – min : 8.2-8.1 = 0.1 cm or 1 mmThe uncertainty of the vertical view is lesser than that of the sideway view hence the vertical view is more accurate.Due to the distance between the ruler and the point of interest where we are measuring, the sideway view has a higher parallax error as the (relatively) large distance exaggerate the possible values that could be viewed by the person.VI-2l’=55cm l=55+2.54=57.54cmuncertainty of 0.3cmMeasured values of T in seconds1.37 1.58 1.421.46 1.63 1.471.54 1.57 1.571.51 1.44 1.411.57 1.32 1.60Excel returns the average value of T= 1.497 seconds.
