Resolution: 1. Smallest input that can be measured/resolved. 2. Minimum input change (∆I) that can cause change in the output (∆O). Note: O is NOT the difference between consecutively measured output values in your calibration test, nor is it the markings on your graph paper! 3. We use the known output device resolution and the sensitivity to determine the resolution of the measurement system: O I K  e.g. If you are using a digital multimeter, the last decimal place on the display is the smallest division you can see. So depending on your setting, it could be 0.001 Volts or it may be 0.1 Volts. 4. Another example: if you are given a ADC with a resolution of 0.05
