**drwls**, Sunday, October 19, 2008 at 5:52amThe uncertainty estimate would be the standard deviation or "sigma", which is the square root of the square of the average deviation from the mean. The mean is 0.145, and that is the "best estoiate".

Squared deviations are:

2.5*10^-5, 2.25*10^-4,2.25*10^-4,2.5*10^-5, 2.5*10^-5, 2.5*10^-5, 2.5*10^-5, 2.5*10^-5

Mean squared deviation: 7.19*10^-5

Standard deviation = 0.0085
