Accuracy: 1. The degree of correctness with which a measuring yields the true value of a measured quantity. 2. Conformity to a standard within applicable tolerances. For example, a scale or weight is said to be accurate and is ordinarily used without correction if, upon being tested, the scale is found to have errors not exceeding the applicable tolerances.
