    This question is from Jun 12 past paper :

    * The reaction between H2O2 and Iodide ions in acidic solution is first order with respect to H2O2. In an experiment to determine the order of ths reaction a value of 0.963 was obtained.
    Calculate the percentage error in this result?

    The answer is 3.7 % but i have no idea how to do it. Pleassse help

    0.963 x100 = 96.3 %
    100% - 96.3% = 3.7%
