Homework Help: Math

Posted by Hannah on Thursday, September 13, 2012 at 2:46pm.

I have to calculate the percent error for my experiment and I just wanted to make sure that I am doing it correctly.

My value was 1.376 and the accepted value was 1.371 so I did

[1.376 - 1.371] / 1.371 = 0.0036 X 100 = 0.36%

Did I do this correctly?
