how do you find the percent error betwwen an experimental value and the accepted value? (of density) thanks

  • science -

    For example water in grams/cm^3
    You do an experiment and get 1.125
    the accepted value is 1.00
    percent error= 100 (1.00-1.125)/1.00
    100 (difference/accepted)
    in this case
    12.5 %
