IB Data processing lab

In summary, to calculate the acceleration of a ball rolling down an inclined plane, use the formula a=2S/t^2, where S is the distance covered by the ball and t is the time taken. When considering errors, note that the distance has an error of +- 0.05 cm and the time has an error of +- 0.01 s. To include errors in your calculation, use the formula for error propagation and solve for the error in acceleration separately.

Homework Statement


Calculate the acceleration of a ball rolling down an inclined plane and also note the error.
I am going to solve it myself, so I will just give one sample.
Distance covered by ball(error : +- 0.05 cm)
.95m
Time taken(error : +- 0.01 s)
1.19s
Acceleration(with error)
Have to calculate

Homework Equations



a=2S/t2

The Attempt at a Solution


I tried doing .95/1.19, that's change in velocity upon time, but that doesn't include the errors that way.
Someone please tell me of an easy way to solve this.

Your error analysis will be done separately. It will depend on how your want to analyze your errors (i.e. in quadrature, etc.). You have solved for acceleration (although you missed ^2 on your time). Now solve for the error and your golden!
