 Data Set/Description Owner Last edited Size Views Speed of light The table below gives Albert Michelson's measurements of the velocity of light in air, made from June 5 to July 2, 1879. The given values + 299,000 are Michelson's measurements in km/sec. The number of cases is n = 100, and the "true" value is 792.4. Michelson made his measurements using devices of his own design. The early experiments, corresponding to our dataset, were improvements on methods that had been used by Foucault. For his work in this area, Michelson was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics in 1907, the first American Scientist to be so honored. The data and descriptive information are based on material from "Do robust estimators work with real data?" by Stephen M. Stigler, Annals of Statistics 5 (1977), 1055-1098. jmanthey Apr 10, 2014 426B 395 Brinkmann Data Project 2 modified.xlsx Common sense and physics show that heavier cars need more fuel, but exactly how does weight affect its fuel efficiency? The data set includes categorical data such as car models and country of origin as well as numerical with cylinder sizes and fuel economy (both city and highway). I am interested in this data because I am shopping for a vehicle to use for a rather long commute to work each day. mjbrinkmann Feb 4, 2019 1KB 45 Physics Lab1--Big Ball ds-14157%sc Aug 11, 2008 102B 258 Physics Lab 4-1 ds-14157%sc Aug 11, 2008 150B 190 Physics Lab 4-2 ds-14157%sc Aug 11, 2008 142B 138 Physics Lab 4-3 ds-14157%sc Aug 11, 2008 142B 84 Physics Lab 4-4 ds-14157%sc Aug 11, 2008 140B 81
