While doing a science experiment, a scientist needs to account for errors (that range from errors in her device to errors in her methodology). Through the course of her calculations, these errors propagate leading to a final error estimate in the result. Depending on the calculation she is doing, a small error in a measurement can lead … More PROPAGATION OF ERRORS

So, it is obvious that your journey to the next metaphorical light bulb will be riddled with failures. These can be as simple … More How *Not* To Do Science.
