I don't know; but if you find it send it to congress immediately.

If you are comparing your value to an accepted value, you first subtract the two values so that the difference you get is a positive number; that is, subtract the smaller of the two from the larger. This is called taking the absolute value of the difference. Then you divide this result (the difference) by the accepted value to get a fraction, and finally multiply by 100% to get the percent error. See an illustration at http://www.ric.edu/bgilbert/s3pcerr.htm

(delta(X)/X)*100

experimental value theoretical value/ theoretical value)x 100= %Error

Percent error can be positive or negative based upon the true or exact value. A worked example for percent error and a calculator can be found as below: http://localhost:53170/AutoCalculator/Calculators/errorformula.aspx

Percent error=error/accepted valueX100%
