Absolute error question

  1. Feb 18, 2016 #1
    In writing up on errors and knowing the error of the machine used (as told by the technician) as being 1.3%
    where I have a table of theoretical and measured values,
    The absolute error the difference between the theoretical and measured value, but where does the 1.3% error come into play?

    And what type of error is it?

    Hello Steve, :welcome:

    Could you give a bit more context ? What's this about ? And perhaps a few examples of measured and theoretical values ?
