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. ...
