ISM Bonus Question - due Friday 10/3 (optional)

In your copper cycle lab, you calculated a percent error of 0, because your accepted and measured values were the same.  However, this is partly due to the lack of precision in the scale, which can only measure to the nearest tenth of a gram.  What is the maximum possible percent error that you could have had, and still had the two masses both register as 0.1 grams?  

If you choose to do this bonus question, you must show the work/reasoning behind your answer and turn it in to Ms. Haddad by Friday.
