For the experiment, we were to determine the relationship between two quantities through linearization after collecting measurements. To verify that P~L^1/2. and determine proportionality constant, C.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

P=C√L/g= (Cg^-1/2)(L^1/2)

Materials used were a timer, string(The pendulum on length), and a meter stick. Excel was also used to construct a line of best fit for the data. The length of the Pendulum for six trials. For each trial, we measured 20 cycles in seconds and set average periods in seconds. What im on now for my paper is sources of error. I'm not really sure what that means.... This is all new for me.
