Agreement Formula Physics

September 9th, 2021

The accuracy of a measurement system is related to the close adequacy between repeated measurements (repeated under the same conditions). Look at the example of paper measurements. The accuracy of the measurements refers to the spacing of the measured values. One way to analyze the accuracy of measurements is to determine the range or difference between the lowest and highest measurements. In this case, the lowest value was 10.9 inches, and the highest value was 11.2 inches. Therefore, the measured values were not less than 0.3 inches. These measurements were relatively accurate because they did not vary too much in value. However, if the measurements had been 10.9, 11.1 and 11.9, the measurements would not be very precise, as there would be significant differences from one measure to another.
