Explain any errors greater than 10%. Well this should be pretty easy for you. Try this one out. “Hey Mr. Lopez my lab partner ate part our experiment so we only got a 50% yield”.


I don’t expect you to use my example, but you may think about how your measurements went. How many significant digits did you round your measurements to. Did you read the scale correctly? Was the water completely removed from the product? There are many different reasons why your experiment could have failed, because if you had more than a 10% difference you had to screw up somewhere.
