1. Look up the value for the speed of sound in air. Be sure to cite where you obtained this infor- mation. Calculate the maximum error in travel time introduced into your experiment due to the finite speed of sound. Show all calculations. Is this a significant source of measurement error in your data?
  2. How might this experiment look if it were performed on the moon? Use appropriate terms, such as velocity, acceleration and position to answer this question.
  3. Estimate the nominal accuracies of each measurement tool used. How do these estimates compare with your calculated deviations? Explain any differences you may observe.
