Acid Error

Science / Chemistry / Acid Error: A systematic error that occurs when glass pH electrodes are used in strongly acidic solutions. Glass electrodes give pH readings that are consistently too high in these solutions. MORE

Alkaline Error

Science / Chemistry / Alkaline Error: A systematic error that occurs when glass electrodes are used to read the pH of an extremely alkaline solution; the electrode responds to sodium ions as though they were hydrogen ions, giving a pH rea MORE

Quantization Error

Technology / Home Audio / Quantization Error: Error resulting from quantizing an analog waveform to a discrete level. In general the longer the word length, the less the error. MORE

Pulse Length Error

Technology / Radar / Pulse Length Error: A range distortion of a radar return caused by the duration of the pulse. The error is always on the far side of the return and is equal to the range equivalent of one half the pulse length. For accur MORE

Random Error

Science / Chemistry / Random Error: Random errors are errors that affect the precision of a set of measurements. Random error scatters measurements above and below the mean, with small random errors being more likely than large ones. MORE

Run-Time Error

Technology / Programming / Run-Time Error: an error that does not disrupt compiling, but causes your program to abort with an error message when running, e.g., 'segmentation fault' and 'floating point exception' MORE
