Percent Error Problems – Find the percent error for each problem below.

I. Samantha measured the volume of her Mountain Dew before she drank it for her breakfast. She measured the volume of the soda in the 355 mL bottle as 343 mL.

II. Clyde was directed to weigh a standard 500.0 g mass on the balance. He weighed the object and reported 458.3 g.

III. Panhia had recorded her grades in her notebook. She concluded she had 250 points. However, her instructor determined that she had 225 points.

IV. Drew went to his instructor with a problem. Drew was told to measure 35.0 cm of copper wire to use in an experiment. Since his ruler only measured up to 30.5 cm, he used this amount instead.
