Abstract: 1. Systematic errors are those which follow some law, continuity of motion or pattern by which they can be predicted. a. Constant errors are fo unchanging magnitude and sign for a given period of time. Some examples of this type of error are: Index error of sextant Watch error Lubber's Line displacement Inaccurate compass Uncorrected deviation of compass Erroneous Deviation curve Erroneous RPM Table Uncorrected Personal Error Systystematic erros, of different signs, may be combined airthmetically to give a Net Systematic Error.
