Ishaan Karpe Chem Lab Lab 1: Discussion Questions A. 1. The manufacturer has good precision since every packet was within .1g of each other. The manufacturer also has good accuracy since the packets were very close to the 1.0g mark. The packages were only a single decimal place off. If the manufacturer had stated that the packets were 1.000g then the precisions would still be good; however, the accuracy would not be so perfect. The packets would have a greater amount of deviation if the measurement went to the thousandths place. 2. The two balances used in the experiment had very similar readings and were only off by thousandths. Three of the packets’ readings were exactly the same on the two scales. However, even such minute differences can skew results one way or another. So it is important to use the same scale throughout the experiments so that the results will be constant and the scale will not be considered a source of error. B. 1. All of the three glass wares used for this experiment had good precision for delivering the
