What does precision in science terms mean?
If you are trying to ask "what does precision in science mean" then I can begin to answer your question. Precision in measurement is a way of deciding how accurate a measurement is. If I were to measure my height with a ruler stick and a pencil against a wall I would expect the measurement to be accurate to a few millimetres. This is usually expressed in scientific terms as "plus or minus" so many millimetres. It is considered unscientific and unfair to...

What does precision mean as it relates to scientific measurement?
Precision refers to how close the values in a set of data are with respect to each other. An indication of precision is given by the mean deviation from the mean of a set of readings (Standard deviation also will do): Mean deviation from mean = Summation (Modulus(X - mean)) / n where X denotes the individual readings and n is the number of readings taken. A small mean deviation from mean indicates high precision. ...

What does precision mean in maths terms?
In mathematics, the word precision is used to describe the total number of digits (the number of significant figures) used in a number to approximate another number. For example, given a number 145.37823 the number 145 approximates the previous number with a precision of 3, and 145.3782 approximates it with a precision of 7. In other words, in maths, at least arithmetically speaking, precision is just another word for significant figures. In statistics, precision is usually a measurement of how well a measurement system...
