Tutor description

PART I: Collect Experimental Data • Bend the provided 30 paper clips until they fail. o Follow the instructions presented in class on how to bend the paperclips. • Record the number of bends until failure for all 30 clips • Determine the frequency of failure from 1 to 20 bends o If the paperclip lasts more than 20 bends, note their frequency in the “20+ bends” row, and mention the frequency of this result in your paper. • Record any additional observations about the paperclips that might be useful. PART II: Organizing the Data Create: 1. A table and histogram (using EXCEL) from your team’s data (30 paperclips). 2. A table and histogram (using EXCEL) from the data collected from the entire class (300 paperclips). 3. A table and histogram (using EXCEL) from the data collected from all 8 sections of EGR 186 (2400 paperclips). Be sure your graphs are appropriately scaled. i.e., don't compare the # of bends of a group (30 paperclips) to the entire class (300 paperclips). If you want to co

Include a cover page with appropriate information.2. The report must contain a 1) problem statement, 2) methods section, 3) results section, and 4) conclusion (make a conclusion by writing a short paragraph to answer the provided questions).a. Conclusion: discuss your observations regarding the frequencies of paperclip failure.i.
