Discussion Questions A. 1. The accuracy of the manufacturer tended to be about 0.1 g within the target 1.0 g. However the precision was fairly good because the actual mass of all the packets except for one were all close to 1.1 g with a standard deviation of .0604. If the manufacturer had said each packet contained 1.000 g then the accuracy would have been worse because the actual mass should be accurate to the thousandth place. 2. The inter-balance precision was fairly consistent (standard deviation was only .001 g), but it is still important to use only one scale during an experiment because even the slightest difference between scales can cause an even bigger difference in later calculations. B. 1. The serological pipet had the least precision with a standard deviation of .1254 mL. The graduated cylinder had the next best precision with a standard deviation of 0.02501 mL. The volumetric pipet had the best precision with a standard deviation of 0.01656 mL. Both the serological pipet and the volumetric pipet delivered the precision and accuracy within the manufacturer’s specifications. The

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
