The density of sample measurements taken by a tech are:
0.810g/mL, 1.375g/mL, 2.046g/mL.
The Actual density is 1.027g/mL.
Are these measurements by the tech. precise accurate or neither or both

Is the correct answer: Neither???

Thanks,

    I would agree that neither is correct although that may depends upon how one defines accuracy. I don't call 1.375 for 1.027 very accurate but some might.
