How do i find sample standard deviation from population standard deviation?

If the population standard deviation is sigma, then the estimate for the sample standard error for a sample of size n, is s = sigma*sqrt[n/(n-1)]

How does one calculate the standard error of the sample mean?

Standard error of the sample mean is calculated dividing the the sample estimate of population standard deviation ("sample standard deviation") by the square root of sample size.

Sample standard deviation?

Standard deviation in statistics refers to how much deviation there is from the average or mean value. Sample deviation refers to the data that was collected from a smaller pool than the population.

What happens if you estimate population standard deviation with the sample standard deviation?

Not a lot. After all, the sample sd is an estimate for the population sd.

How do you calculate sample standard deviation?

Here's how you do it in Excel: use the function =STDEV(<range with data>). That function calculates standard deviation for a sample.
