#1 What is uncertainty of measurement? (pick up a sentence)

 

#2 What is error? (pick up a sentence)

 

#3 What is uncertainly? (pick up a sentence)

 

#4 Can you measure the true value? Please answer with your opinion & reason, referring with “Annex A”.

 

#5 Please explain “Measure thrice, cut once” (pick up a sentence)

 

#6 How many readings should you average? (pick up some sentences, considering with “diminishing returns”)

 

#7 What the spread tells us? (pick up a sentence)

 

#8 The usual way to quantify spread is standard deviation. Sometimes the quantification is enough by another simple way. What is it? (pick up a sentence)

 

#9 What is the standard deviation? (pick up sentence from “Annex A”)

 

#10 How many readings do you need to find an estimated standard deviation? (pick up sentences)

 

#11 Where do errors and uncertainties come from? (pick up all the sentences about the seven origins.)

 

#12 Please explain the “random” or “systematic” uncertainty in any measurement. (pick up all the sentences)

 

#13 Statistical analysis is not uncertainty analysis. Please explain the reason by picking up sentences from “5.3 What is not a measurement uncertainty?”

 

#14 No need to your answer. If you learn more, let’s read “6.1, 6.2, and 9.1”

 

#15 Question about “Measure thrice, cut once” again. Please explain what will be happened when you make two or three measurements. (pick up sentences)

 

#16 Question again. How many readings should you average?

 

#17 Question again. How many readings do you need if you want to find an estimated standard deviation?

 

#18 Question again. Please pick up the seven origins of errors and uncertainties

 

#19 For your research, which is better choice of “reducing the errors and uncertainties” or “calculation the average or standard deviation”? Please your opinion after reading of “Abstract” & Chapter 11″.

 

#20 Final question. How many readings will you have in your experiments at the same condition? Please three answers. (TIP: #15-17)
