    Discuss the effects of the following sources of errors on Measurements of length & mass. and suggest metods to overcome them:

    1- Existing of a dust on both the sample and the measuring devices.
    2- Irregularity of the samples.
    3- Slope of the balance from the horizontal line.
    4- Other sources.

    Do you want to suggest something first? For me, 3 would be as simple as using a 'spirit-level' or horizontal surface to sort out.
