Percentage error measures the error in relation to the quantity measured. For example if something weighs 100 grams with a possible error of plus or minus 5 grams, this is an error of 5%

Look on the equipment for where it says the plus or minus figure for accuracy (for a burette it is usually + and _ 0.1cm3) divide this by the amount you measured , times 100 to make it a percentage. ---- ---- Percentage Error = Maximum Error / Measured Value X 100 For example.Maximum Error for the following apparatus are:Balance = +/- 0.01Pippette = +/- 0.1 And the Measured value for each are:Balance = 0.15Pippette = 25 Then...the percentage error is:Balance percentage error = 0.01 / 0.15 X 100 = 66.66%Pippette percentage error = 0.1 / 25 X 100 = 0.3% You can now also work out your maximum total error.Maximum total Percentage error = Balance Percentage error + Pippette Percentage errorMaximum total percentage error = 66.66 + 0.4 = 67.06%

A percentage error is 100*(measurement - true value)/true valueThe percentage error is negative if the measured (or calculated) value is smaller that the true value.

The span error is calculated by taking the span error and dividing it by the original measurement then multiplying by 100. The value gives us the span error as a percentage.

percentage error= experimental value-accepted value/ accepted value x 100 (percentage error is negative only if the accepted value is larger than the experimental value) percentage error= 9.67-9.82/9.82 x 100 percentage error= -1.6

its a percent error * * * * * No, it is the relative error. When that is multiplied by 100 it becomes a percentage error.
