Standard Deviation

Could someone help me by providing the general method for determining the standard deviation of a set of values? We need to use the concept fairly often for Chem Lab and it’s no where in my text book.

Man, this thread is HOT!

Thank you.
And CH… oh, forget it.:thud:

I am so glad that I didn’t have to do that last year. And that this year I have a sneaky way of doing.

Stadard deviation is possibly one of the hardest things to do, just because it takes so long.

I hated doing that shit last year. Last semester we had to learn it all over again with statistics and it was awful.
