Physics 111: Introduction to Error Analysis Physics 111 Advanced Laboratory. Professor Sumner Davis This video accompanies the Error Analysis exercise, providing students with an introduction to the theory and procedures. In many labs, you will be required to perform a detailed analysis of the data you have acquired to make quantitative statements about the properties of the physical world. A common question is, are your measurements consistent with a particular theory or not? This question can be answered only by careful analysis of systematic uncertainties and statistical error. The goals of this exercise are twofold. One is to introduce you to the basics of error analysis. The second is to familiarize you with the Matlab software that you will be using for data analysis . Ideally, this will serve as a guide during the acquisition and analysis of data throughout the advanced lab. http://advancedlab.org
