You used 100cm3 mark on the beaker to measure 100cm3. Was this method the most accurate measurement possible to -+1cm3.
Did this level of accuracy affect reliability of what you calculated?

It would affect the accuracy because it would affect further calculations for example if you then had to calculate rate of reaction this would be innaccurate. It lacks reliability because if you were going to do it again you would get different results. Due to the beaker having the +/- 1cm3 uncertainty you would get slightly different measurements each time.
