Homework Help: How to do error analysis in this lab on linear motion

  1. Oct 28, 2009 #1
    Okay so I did a lab on Linear Motion using the glider with the air track and a spacer. This is the information I have about the glider and spacer.

    glider mass = (468.7 +/- 0.02) g
    thickness of spacer =(14.8 +/-0.05) mm

    I'm stuck on doing the error analysis and I don't know how to go on about analyzing the graph then finding the uncertainties. Here's the graph that I printed out from LoggerPro.

    Re: Uncertainties

    anyone? i really need this, i've completed everything else but the complete calculations for analysis and data, i just need an idea on how to approach the calculations. i'm getting confused looking at the computational guide for uncertainties =(
