    Need help in determining a source of error in an experiment

    Homework Statement It is known that the theoretical resistivity of copper is approximately: 2*10^-8 Ωm. But after I conducted an experiment to find the resistivity of copper, the results turned out to be: 1.68*10^-8Ωm. This is a very small error that can be easily dismissed due to "human...
