Homework Help: What do I do if my uncertainty is larger than the actual value?

  1. Apr 23, 2013 #1
    It's .22 ± .026s

    I know it's wrong to have an uncertainty mor eprecise than the value, but this uncertainty was obtained through the standard deviation methos ( with the sqaure) root? What should I do?

    NVM I fugured it out myself.
