Statistical Analysis of 4 MN Force Range Key Comparison

Published

Author(s)

Thomas W. Bartel

Abstract

The factors contributing to the uncertainty are discussed for the measurements that were conducted for the 2 MN and 4MN force values of the very high force CIPM key comparison. Details of the statistical analysis by the pilot institute, NIST, are provided. Various options for calculating the reference values and degrees of equivalence are presented, accounting for the uncertainty differences associated with the comparison force transfer standards and with the force standard machines of the participating institutes.
