Physics

Measurement can be accurate without being precise. True=1, false = 0


ANSWER

1


SOLUTION
You can be very precise but inaccurate. You can also be accurate but imprecise. For example, if on average, your measurements for a given substance are close to the known value, but the measurements are far from each other, then you have accuracy with precision.

Q2 Subjective Medium
Time standard are not based on atomic clocks. A promising second standard is based on pulsars, which are rotating neutron stars (highly compact stars consisting only of neutrons). Some rotate at a rate that is highly stable, sending out a radio beacon that sweeps briefly across Earth once with each rotation, like a lighthouse beacon. Pulsar PSR $$1937+21$$ us an example it rotates once every $$1.557\ 806\ 448\ 872\ 75\pm 3\ ms$$, where the trailing $$\pm 3$$ indicates the uncertainty in the last decimal place (it does not mean $$\pm 3\ ms$$).
what is the associated uncertainty?

Q4 Subjective Medium
A book with many printing errors contains four different formulas for the displacement y of a particle undergoing a certain periodic motion :
(a) $$y = a sin \ {2\pi}^{t/T} $$
(b) y = a sin $$\upsilon$$ t
(c) y = (a/T) sin t/a
(d) y = (a/
$$\sqrt{2}$$) (sin 2$$\pi$$ / T + cos 2$$\pi$$ / T)
(a = maximum displacement of the particle, v = speed of the particle. T = time-period of motion). Rule out the wrong formulas on dimensional grounds.
