4 Inaccuracy – difference between expected and measured value Precision – how closely the measured values are ‘bunched’ together; result of multiple experiments Uncertainty – domain around measured value where actual value might lie Error Absolute – dQ Relative – dQ/Q Propagated – caused when Q is a function of measured values, each with an uncertainty of its own NOTE - Q is any measurable quantity
