How do you calculate percentage error for equipment?
Look on the equipment for where it says the plus or minus figure for accuracy (for a burette it is usually + and _ 0.1cm3) divide this by the amount you measured , times 100 to make it a percentage. ---- ---- Percentage Error = Maximum Error / Measured Value X 100 For example. Maximum Error for the following apparatus are: Balance = +/- 0.01 Pippette = +/- 0.1 And the Measured value for each are: Balance = 0.15 Pippette = 25 Then...the percentage error is: Balance percentage error = 0.01 / 0.15 X 100 = 66.66% Pippette percentage error = 0.1 / 25 X 100 = 0.3% You can now also work out your maximum total error. Maximum total Percentage error = Balance Percentage error + Pippette Percentage error Maximum total percentage error = 66.66 + 0.4 = 67.06%

What is the percent error of 4cm?
A percent error depends on the size of the measurement as well as the error itself. It's very intuitive to think about: If you're measuring a piece of paper and you're off by 4 cm, you'll have problems; if you're measuring the moon, that's nothing. A bigger percent error is a bigger deal to an engineer. You can calculate it the same way as any percentage: Divide the error by the total length of the measurement, then multiply by 100 to convert it from a proportion to a percentage.
