Relative Error Calculator

Relative Error Calculator

What formulas are used for the Relative Error Calculator?
AE = |E - T|
PE = |E - T|/E

What 6 concepts are covered in the Relative Error Calculator?
absolute error
The difference between the experimental (Actual) value and expected or theoretical value

results or observations that happen in real life

experimental value
the value that is measured during the experiment.

a specified amount in or for every hundred. one part in every hundred.
n% = n/100

relative error
the ratio of the absolute error of a measurement to the measurement being taken.

theoretical value
value determined from theory - what you expect to happen
