Enter the side length (in) and the maximum side error (in) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Max Error.

## Max Error Formula

ME = 3*s^2*ds

Variables:

- ME is the Max Error (in^3)
- s is the side length (in)
- ds is the maximum side error (in)

To calculate Max Error, multiply the side length squared by 3, then multiply by the maximum side error.

## How to Calculate Max Error?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Max Error.

- First, determine the side length (in).
- Next, determine the maximum side error (in).
- Next, gather the formula from above = ME = 3*s^2*ds.
- Finally, calculate the Max Error.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

side length (in) = 4.5

maximum side error (in) = 60
