High school physics lab question
Working on a lab report for my physics lab and had a quick question. In the lab, you set up a motion detector, drop a ball, examine the velocity, acceleration, and what not. The question is:
How precisely can the MD measure time? How precisely can it measure distance?
WHen we recorded a value, the motion detector took it out to the thousandths place. WOuld that be the answer. "The MD is precise down to the thousandth of a second." I always thought that precision was how close a value was to other similar values...
A little confused as what to put, any help is excellent!
