Chapter 1, Problem 1.10P
To determine

The overall instrument uncertainty for this system based on available information by using the maximum possible output value over the FSO in your computations for a force measurement system (weight scale) having the following specifications:

Range 0 to 1000N
Linearity Error 0.10 % FSO
Hysteresis Error 0.10 % FSO
Sensitivity Error 0.15 % FSO
Zero Drift 0.20 % FSO
