Accuracy In Measurements, In Calculations, Rounding

Accuracy is how close an experimental reading or calculation is to the true value. Lack of accuracy may be due to error or due to approximation. The less total error in an experiment or calculation, the more accurate the results. Error analysis can provide information about the accuracy of a result.
