Question

# What is absolute error, mean absolute error and relative error?

Solution

## Absolute error - The difference between true value (usually mean value) and measured value is called an absolute error.Mean absolute error - (only magnitude of $$\Delta a$$$$a= a_{mean} \pm \Delta a_{mean} \implies$$ a lies between $$a_m - \Delta a_{mean}$$ to $$a_m + \Delta a_{mean}$$$$\Delta a_{mean} = \dfrac{|\Delta a_1| + | \Delta a_2| + ........|\Delta a_n|}{n}$$Relative error $$= \dfrac{\Delta a_{mean}}{a_{mean}}$$   Relative $$\% = \pm \dfrac{\Delta a_{mean}}{a_{mean}} \times 100 = fractional \ error \times 100$$General Knowledge
