What is MEASUREMENT ERROR

The quantity’s actual value differs from a measured value. A systemic error caused by the measuring instrument’s incorrect calibration will not improve by repeating the measurement. A random error caused by the measuring instrument’s accuracy limit will improve or reduce by repeating the measurement.
