Nuclear Science and Techniques (NST) is an international, peer-reviewed scientific journal sponsored by Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Nuclear Society. It was established in 1990 as a quarterly journal and had been changed to a monthly frequency in 2017. The journal is devoted to applied nuclear physics; fundamental study of nuclear energy; application of nuclear techniques in various fields; radiochemistry and radiation chemistry; nuclear instruments and methods. The publication of the journal is aimed at enhancing academic exchange between Chinese and foreign scientists, and at promoting development of nuclear science and techniques and their applications. NST has been indexed by SCI-E, CA in US, SA in UK and РЖ in Russia. The editor-in-chief is Prof. Yu-Gang Ma.
Physics being an experimental science, we sought to learn how to prepare a lab and perform as a team accounting for errors and uncertainties and to reduce them. We gathered values for volume using Micrometer, gathered information on acceleration, velocity, and created a histogram using a PASCO motion sensor. A jumping experiment was also performed with a human and the motion sensor. Our main goal was to test the effects of human error and eliminating mechanical error.
