# Percentage Error Of Burette

## Contents

You can only upload videos smaller than 600MB. Burette is used to add titrant to the titrated solution and it has a scale on the side, so that you can precisely measure volume of the added solution. When you start of consider mass and volume (and concentration and number of moles.....), to determine overall error or uncertainty, percentage errors then are the only meaningful ones to work with. Volumetric flask is used to dilute original sample to known volume, so it is paramount that it contains exact volume. have a peek at these guys

This means that in a titration (as opposed to just using a burette to measure a volume) you may have an error of 0.2 cm3. You will however have the same volume error each titre of 0.2ml. Anyway As you said you had 15 readings for 1 concentration thats mean you need to find out the volume so that you can work out the number of moles by This line, when watched through the meniscus, seems to be hourglass shaped - and you should align the thinnest part of the line with the calibration mark.

Oops! This being said, you should compute the sum of the errors in mL first, divide by the measurement, and multiply by 100. Reply RK Follow 142,832 followers 3 badges Visit RK's homepage!

Usually when measuring volume of the solution, the bottom of the concave meniscus must be precisely on a calibration mark. Now try calculating the following percentage uncertainties... 1.00 g on a 2 decimal place balance 10.00 g on a 2 decimal place balance 1.00 g on a 3 decimal place balance I don't think you understand the concept of percentage errors - you are analysing the errors assosciated with the appartus you have used - these errors are beyond your control.

It can be interesting to check relative accuracies of volumetric glass calculated wih the use of the tolerances data. OR You can just take 3 results that are concordant enough for each trial that would be good for your experiment instead of calculating the whole results.

trial 1: 11.2, 11.5,........(13/15 MORE results for all of them...) trial 2:11.2, 11.5........... More about the author That's my opinion. Read the number from left to right and count all the digits starting with the first digit that is not zero. Please try the request again. Accuracy Of Burette

So from this, the 2ml error in a 50ml burette, would give a % error of 0.4% [(0.2/50)x100] Am I right? According to ASTM E287-02, tolerance of A class 1000mL volumetric flask should be ±0.300, that means ±0.600 for B class flask (twice A class tolerance). eg. check my blog Both kinds of glass were designed this way as they serve different purposes.
