39 Uncertainty in Measurement A digit that must be estimated is called uncertain. A measurement always has some degree of uncertainty39
40 Why Is there Uncertainty? Measurements are performed with instrumentsNo instrument can read to an infinite number of decimal places
41 Which of these balances has the greatest uncertainty in measurement?
42 Accuracy vs. Precision ACCURATE = CORRECT PRECISE = CONSISTENT Accuracy - how close a measurement is to the accepted valuePrecision - how close a series of measurements are to each otherACCURATE = CORRECTPRECISE = CONSISTENT
