Suppose you were first to measure the value of some physical constant experimentally. How would you provide an estimate of the experimental uncertainty?


Expert Answer

Step 1

To estimate the experimental uncertainty, by using percentage error, to measure the error first repeat the experiments one or two times to get the...
