IIS Guido Donegani - Crotone
In this unit we present a basic topic in physics, engineering and all quantitative sciences: measurements and errors. Measuring (and communicating measurements) is not as simple and exact an operation as you may think at first impression; it is the first step for every scientific activity, from research to design and prediction-making. You will see some characteristics of the measuring instruments, and understand the importance of a system of units. You will learn how to estimate the uncertainty of a measurement.
