I need to find the percent error from a lab I did in class. i have all the data but I don't know what would be used for the theoretical weight and experimental weight in the percent error formula. I used 10 mL, 25 mL, and 50 mL of water in a graduated cylinder. I'll just used the 10 mL information. I got 8.9 mL for the meniscus. The weight of the cylinder was 75.35 grams and with the water, 82.92 grams which makes the weight of the water 7.57 grams. So the problem once again is what I would use for the theoretical weight and experimental weight in the percent area formula. I would ask my teacher but he's not that friendly and makes me feel like an idiot.
