A chemistry researcher at the University of Iowa was investigating variations in the density of silicon at different temperatures.  Unfortunately, the researcher failed to calibrate the laboratory instrument used to make measurements in his experiment, resulting in the same error in density measurement at every temperature tested.  This is an example of which type of error?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Choose systematic error. The error is systematic as all density measurements are erroneous due to failure to calibrate.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
