In concert with measurement is uncertainty, and students in science and engineering need to identify and quantify uncertainties in the measurements they make. This book introduces measurement and uncertainty to second and third year students of science and by: The book goes in-depth into explaining national and international measurement systems and standards, and includes a complete chapter on calibration and measurement trace ability.

Measurement Uncertainty will show how to evaluate various uncertainties in measurements using several approaches including international consensus.

Start by evaluating the core elements of the measurement process, including the: Method, Equipment, Personnel, Environment, Unit Under Test, and; Results. For example, if you weigh something on a scale that measures down to the nearest g, then you can confidently estimate that there is a ± g uncertainty in the measurement.

This is because a g measurement could really be anything from g (rounded up) to just under g (rounded down). 16 Assessment of Uncertainties of Measurement Preface I n the two and a half years since this book was first published there has been an encouraging demand for it.

Current value accounting is the concept that assets and liabilities be measured at the current value at which they could be sold or settled as of the current date.
