In physics even a small difference in measure can give a big error
Sometimes this is true, but much more often it is not. One of the more important things you learn going through a bachelor's level undergraduate physics curriculum is how to recognize which small differences can be safely ignored in any given problem and which cannot. Without this skill you will never be able to calculate anything useful.

Google for "Fermi Problem".
