Homework Help: Using calibration data for a beam scale -- How to apply?

  1. Nov 2, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I attached the full document, buy I just want to know about :

    "Using calibration procedure determine:

    a) Sensitivity (mV/gr)
    b) Overall instrument error (gr)
    c) Linearity error %FSO
    d) Hysteresis error %FSO
    e) Precision error %FSO"

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I attached the table and figure created as a result of the calibration process, but I was wondering how do I use these to find the errors?
