Random error can be eliminated by taking multiple measurement because the more trials, ther better the average. d. Systematic Error i. Error that causes for measurement to be found higher or lower than expected. To eliminate it, you can add or gain the appropriate measurements to make your data correct, however, systematic error is hard to detect so it can be difficult to eliminate from an experiment. 3. The uncertainty found in a measurement like this would be scale limitation, however if this is not an issue in the measurement, the experiment should have little to no uncertainty. 4. 549.552 ± 55.168 cm 2 5. 11 ± .5 cm...
