Sensitivity coefficients, errors and uncertainty


Looking at the physical origins of effects and what we need to know about effects to propagate uncertainties. Music by Bensound

At this point, we’ve looked briefly at measurement uncertainty, introduced the concept of an uncertainty analysis tree and have also seen that sensitivity coefficients play a crucial role in the propagation of uncertainties. In this lesson, we will look at the concepts or error and uncertainty in more detail, see how they differ from each other and also take a closer look at sensitivity coefficients.
