abs value[ (assumed value - true value)/ true value] x 100%

to find the true value I did:

(365 days/yr) x (24 hours/1 day) x (60 minutes/hour) x (60 seconds/minute)

but this, when plugged in, didn't give me the correct answer...help!

- physics please -
**drwls**, Friday, January 22, 2010 at 1:20amAssume an average year of 235.24 days. That is 31,556,736 seconds instead of 31,415,920 .

Percentage error is the difference divided by the correct value, converted to %.

I get 0.45 %
