The precision with which a measurement or value is known. Often implies a 50-50 chance that any one of a series of measurements would fall within a given range. Does not necessarily imply anything about accuracy, which is comparison with the true value. See probable error and standard deviation. Uncertainty differs from error (q.v.), which is a deviation from the correct value.
