Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the cylinder was not correctly calibrated (this means the marks in the cylinder are far from the real values or the distance between the marks are not proportional to the change in the volume) it will affect the precision, the accuracy, both or neither of them in your measurements? Do you think that your measurements will be trustable or untrustworthy?
