3 Statistical Analysis of Data Error or Uncertainty in Measurements Determinate (Systematic) Error: 1. Constant error: X(Exp) - X(True) = δ Calibration error of instruments Blank correction in titration Solubility losses Background absorbance of solvent δ /X decreases as X increases Therefore, do experiments with different sample sizes 2. Proportional error: X(Exp) - X(True) = ε X(True) NaBr as contaminant in NaCl for Ag determination as AgCl Therefore, do experiments with different bottles of reagents

4 Statistical Analysis of Data Error or Uncertainty in Measurements Indeterminate (Random) Error (Uncertainty) Limit of the technique. Cannot be eliminated. Not really error, but precision or repeatability of measurements. Precision = reproducibility of measurements Accuracy = agreement with “true” value
