Four people weigh a standard mass of 10.00 g on the same balance. The first person obtains a reading of 12.00 g, the second person reads 9.14 g, the third person reads 10.33 g, and the fourth person reads 12.55 g. These readings suggest the balance is
Precise
Accurate
Neither accurate nor precise
Accurate and precise
I think it is precise. I am having the hardest time with this. Can someone please help.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I really don't even know under what circumstances it could be "precise," since there's only one data as the outcome.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The question is which of the following is an example of measurement bias? A stopwatch is accurate to 1/100th of a second for each measurement. A stopwatch measures with a measurement interval of ±0.05 seconds in one day. A stopwatch cannot duplicate a measurement of precisely 3.00 seconds. A stopwatch must be calibrated before each use.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's C. It means that it's not accurate, so if something took EXACTLY 6 seconds, then it would be off.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, if that was incorrect, I feel the next best answer would be B like you said. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think so too... Ugh, this is so confusing for me. You don't think it would "A stopwatch must be calibrated before each use."?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That would really depend on what it would be used for. If you needed to keep using it, one time after another, then it would be D, but it doesn't specify what it would be used for...
