Have a question regarding making error bars. Should I calculate the mean of the spring constant (by taking the largest value plus the smallest value of the spring constant divided by 2), and then calculate the standard deviation and then make a diagram?
Okay, I understand.
But I wonder one thing, and that is whether using this formula ( T ^ 2 = (2pi) ^ 2 / k * m) used in part 2 could affect the results, or what I mean is that the fact that we used the oscillation time squared could affect the result in some way when you got the spring constant?
You have access now.
No, that's what I'm not sure how to do.
How should I analyze the error for each method and estimate the error interval in each reading? This is what I think about but do not figure out how to do an error analysis and error estimate.
Can the fact that in part 2 the formula for the oscillation time in square and 2pi was used affect the result and thus method 1 in part 1 is more reliable?
Okay, I have fixed it now. What I do not understand are questions 2 and 3, part 3 of the document. How do I know which of the two values of the spring constant I got should be used? And question 3, how to analyze errors in measurements and calculation methods and thus arrive at which method in...

It says how the experiment was carried out and also measured values are there.
And it's "part 3 of the document" that I need help with.
In question 1, the spring constant from the two formulas was not the same. When we used the first formula, we got that the spring constant was 7.83 N / m. The second formula we got that the spring constant was 8,03 N / m.
In questions 2 and 3 I do not know and am unsure about how to answer...
