Measuring units & Weighing scales

Namaha was gradually rolling on his path toward the enlightenment of human being successfully … where Namaha got encountered with an error in the clock ( time) which on his further studies he came across the fault in calendar measuring unit etc….in his studies he found the resolution of scale with which the measurement is taken, be it rule, tape, weighing scale etc will affect the reading. An absolute value of 100.5 may be read either as 100 or 101 because the scale is graduated no finer. This represents an error of +/-0.5%. Additionally, the scale will be subject to an inherent error or inaccuracy.
For example, an absolute value of 100 may be measured as exactly 101 by the scale. Thus, there is a calibration error of 1 %. This error may exist when the quantity being measured is zero i.e. it may be a zero error. Alternatively, it may be a progressive error which is always 1 % of the value measured. In practice, the error will comprise some element of each type. The scope for the error of a scale which is graduated in whole units and has a 1% error in its calibration is 1.5% when measuring a quantity o 100 unit… This small error has an adverse effect at many places for example banks…which causes the problem in reconciling accounts just because math is incorrect, probably due to rounding off failure.
Same is with measurement tools… This .5% error can cause a gross error which is caused by mistake in using instrument or meters calculating measurement and recording data results…and above all one of the ground breaking research is 360 days calendar with 30 days per month.
