**Chapter 2 Lesson Starter**

Section 3 Using Scientific Measurements Chapter 2 Lesson Starter Look at the specifications for electronic balances. How do the instruments vary in precision? Discuss using a beaker to measure volume versus using a graduated cylinder. Which is more precise? Chapter menu Resources Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved.

**Measurements and Their Uncertainty**

2.3 On January 4, 2004, the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit landed on Mars. Each day of its mission, Spirit recorded measurements for analysis. In the chemistry laboratory, you must strive for accuracy and precision in your measurements. (In August 2012, a new rover landed on Mars to collect data.)

**Accuracy, Precision, and Error**

2.3 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Accuracy, Precision, and Error Accuracy and Precision Accuracy is a measure of how close a measurement comes to the actual or true value of whatever is measured. Precision is a measure of how close a series of measurements are to one another. Slide of 48 5 End Show © Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall

6
**Accuracy, Precision, and Error**

2.3 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Accuracy, Precision, and Error To evaluate the accuracy of a measurement, the measured value must be compared to the correct value. To evaluate the precision of a measurement, you must compare the values of two or more repeated measurements. Slide of 48 6 End Show © Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall

**Accuracy, Precision, and Error**

2.3 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Accuracy, Precision, and Error The distribution of darts illustrates the difference between accuracy and precision. a) Good accuracy and good precision: The darts are close to the bull’s-eye and to one another. b) Poor accuracy and good precision: The darts are far from the bull’s-eye but close to one another. c) Poor accuracy and poor precision: The darts are far from the bull’s-eye and from one another.

**Accuracy, Precision, and Error**

2.3 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Accuracy, Precision, and Error Just because a measuring device works, you cannot assume it is accurate. The scale below has not been properly zeroed, so the reading obtained for the person’s weight is inaccurate. The scale below has not been properly zeroed, so the reading obtained for the person’s weight is inaccurate. There is a difference between the person’s correct weight and the measured value. Calculating What is the percent error of a measured value of 114 lb if the person’s actual weight is 107 lb? Slide of 48 10 End Show © Copyright Pearson Prentice Hall

**Accuracy, Precision, and Error**

2.3 Measurements and Their Uncertainty > Accuracy, Precision, and Error Determining Error The accepted value is the correct value based on reliable references. The experimental value is the value measured in the lab. The difference between the experimental value and the accepted value is called the error.

**Accuracy and Precision, continued**

Section 3 Using Scientific Measurements Chapter 2 Accuracy and Precision, continued Percentage Error Percentage error is calculated by subtracting the accepted value from the experimental value, dividing the difference by the accepted value, and then multiplying by 100.
