Human Error


Recommended Posts

The lab involving the groups jumping has a very high percent error due to uncontrollable factors. For one, it is difficult to record the exact time a person is in the air for. Timers may be off, or a person’s reaction time to hit the timer is not exact. This makes for inaccuracies within the experiment. Another factor that increases the percent error is if the person takes a step on accident, this may give them a much different result than those people who are standing still. If this lab could be redesigned, a more accurate form of timing would be very helpful. One such way to do this is using a timing app on your phone which can record the time you’re your immediate jump, to the time you land.
