Student Manual

The measurement of a physical quantity could be achieved using different instruments or
measurement techniques. Whether two experiments yield comparable values determines the
‘reproducibility’ of measurements which is distinct from the concept of ‘repeatability’. In the present task, you are required to measure the time period of a simple pendulum using two sets of equipment: a stopwatch and a timer.
