Lab Accuracy/Precision Lab Pre-Lab • Contrast Accuracy & Precision • Give another example of accuracy and another example of precision • Contrast Random Errors & Systematic Errors • Copy the Formula for % Error
Lab Accuracy/Precision Lab • Make a Data Chart with group members names and Throws 1-4 and an average • For each person in your group, state whether their average was accurate. Then state whether their throws were precise. Give explanations why for both. • Compute the % error for each person in your group. Be sure to show all your work. • State what types of errors there could have been in this experiment today.
Lab Accuracy/Precision Questions • What industries have to have very precise measurements & why is it important to those industries? • What industries have to have very accurate measurements & why is it important to those industries? • How could errors such as random errors and systematic errors be eliminated?
