hello
if i did an experiment, and a question was asked:
'Within what limits have you shown that...'
what do the limits mean?
do they mean like within the time frame, or like temperature, friction...etc?

By 'limits' they probably meant the constraints, restrictions, assumptions, etc. about the experiment.
 
It completely depends on the experiment itself. Different experiments have different limits of course. In one case, you might say friction is negligible while in another you can assume that heat lost to the environment(or gained) is ignored.
