percent error (theoretical/actual value)?
sort of lost here... I know it's theoretical value - actual / theoretical x 100% but still lost. Any help appreciated
Acceleration measured (m/s2): .025
Acceleration calculated (m/s2): 10
total mass was .400 (kg)
figures... i'm completely lost here
heres what my table looks like
mass of wagen: .399
mass of hanging line: .001
acceleration measured .025
Applied Fnet (kg): ?
Total Mass: .400
Acceleration calculated: 10
% error: ?

the measured value is so far off that you probably made a mistake somewhere.
The percent error would be huge.
(10 - 0.025)/10 = 99.75% error by your formula
but actually your measurement is off by 3 orders of magnitude. Like measuring a 60 mph auto at 60000 mph.

First, you're taking the version of your value and the easily value, 396.3-330 = sixty six.3 then you fairly take that difference and divide it by using the easily value : sixty six.3/330 = .20 so the % blunders is 20% wish this helps :D
