Abstract

Physics being an experimental science, we sought to learn how to prepare a lab and perform as a team accounting for errors and uncertainties and to reduce them. We gathered values for volume using Micrometer, gathered information on acceleration, velocity, and created a histogram using a PASCO motion sensor. A jumping experiment was also performed with a human and the motion sensor. Our main goal was to test the effects of human error and eliminating mechanical error.
