## Examples of systematic errors in the following topics:

• ### Experimental Evidence for Reaction Mechanisms

• The calibration is subject to systematic errors, especially if there are side reactions occurring.For example, if the total number of moles of gas changes during a gas reaction, the course of the reaction can be measured by monitoring the change in pressure at a constant volume or the change in volume at a constant pressure.
