# What is the difference between accuracy and precision in scientific experiments?

Feb 16, 2017

$\text{Accuracy}$ represents how close your measurement is to the true value.........

#### Explanation:

$\text{Precision}$ refers to repeatability. $\text{Precise values}$ may be inaccurate, and $\text{inaccurate values}$ may be precise because there is some systematic error, for which we do not account.
