## Main Question or Discussion Point

Lets say a sensor measures within accuracy of +/- 0.05N

And you take multiple measurements and graph it out. (I.e., 5.12N, 5.15N, 5.05N...).

What is the uncertainty of the final average?

One way I read is:

Sx = s/√N where s = std. dev.

N = number of data points

But this doesn't incorporate the sensor's uncertainty.
