Figure 1. Standard deviation

This is the second blog post (out of three) continuing on the subject of calibration uncertainty. In the first blog post we discussed the basics; how important it is to be aware of the uncertainty, short terminology and the classic “piece of string“ example.  If you missed the Part 1-blog post, you can find it here. If you want to get all the parts at once, feel free to download the related full white paper from the link below:
