4 Some founding fathers a Science Pythagoras b.c. Study of harmonics systems (physics, mathematics, music, harmony in architecture and art) Archimedes b.c. Nature and its phenomena can be represented by numbers and mathematical laws Galileo Indeed it moves! Defined the scientific method to certify objective truths.
5 Physics Units (Internat. System [SI] [MKS]) Science concerns aspects of nature that can be measured The measurement act consists in the comparisons of a physical quantity w.r.t. a standard. The measure is how many times the standard quantity stays in the measured quantity The Meter and Kilogram historical standards are preserved in Paris. They are composed of very stable material and in an isolated environment second corresponds to the duration of periods of the characteristic radiation of Cesium 133 atom (about 1 / of a solar day) To define time it is necessary to count the number of period of a phenomenon which is supposed to be periodic (we suppose that the unit of time doesn t change, we can not travel in time)
6 Physics Units (Internat. System [SI] [MKS]) Science concerns aspects of nature that can be measured The measurement act consists in the comparisons of a physical quantity w.r.t. a standard. The measure is how many times the standard quantity stays in the measured quantity
7 Derived Units A physical quantity A can be always expressed as combination of fundamental IS unit [MKS] [A] =[m α Kg β s γ ] with α, β, γ integer numbers..., 3, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, 3,...
8 Derived Units A physical quantity A can be always expressed as combination of fundamental IS unit [MKS] [A] =[m α Kg β s γ ] with α, β, γ integer numbers..., 3, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, 3,... The Dimensional Analysis is very important to check your problems and to remember physics laws [N] = Kg m s 2 = Kg m s 2 F = Ma where the mass M =[Kg] and the acceleration a = m s 2
9 Conversion factors and scale factors These are dimensionless factors and they allows for the conversion of physical units among different dimensional systems
10 Conversion factors and scale factors These are dimensionless factors and they allows for the conversion of physical units among different dimensional systems Time scales
11 Elementi di Statistica Statistic error: consequence of aleatoric causes (ability of the operator, variations of physical conditions, etc) Systematic error: consequence of a non accurate offset of the experimental equipment Given a set of N measures {x 1,x 2,...x N } of a given physical quantity X, we define mean value x e stadard devation σ x (quadratic deviation), respectively, x = x 1 + x x N N 2 1 σ x = N N 1 The magnitude of the standard deviation determines the number of significative figures of the results. = = N i=1 x i N N i=1 2 i N 1 where the deviations are defined as i = x i x. The outcome of a measure is expressed by the mean value and by the standard deviation denoting the error in the measure itself x ± σ x
12 Gaussian distribution For a large set of measurements the probability of an outcome is typically given by the Gaussian distribution (normalised to 1). The probability f(x) to measure x is f(x) = 1 e (x x) 2σ x 2 2πσ 2 x 2
13 Propagation of the errors if x = x ± x: relative error x x, where the absolute error is x. We want to test the generic physical law F = f(x, y) for two (non independent) physical quantities x = x ± x and y =ȳ ± y. TheresultisF = f( x, ȳ) ± F where F is given by (α is a known coefficient): if f(x, y) =α(x + y) or f(x, y) =α(x y): sum of absolute errors F = α( x + y) 1 if f(x, y) =α(x y) or f(x, y) =α x y : sum of relative errors F F x = α( x + y y ) 1 1 Notice: if the errors are independent f = α x 2 + y 2.
