Comparing the methods

- The calculated standard deviation was found to be 5.1E-4 with a one standard deviation value of 0.4E-4.

- This is statistically indistinguishable from the analytical value of sAc(t)=5.07E-4.

- Using this example, at the one standard deviation level, a random sample of 30 evaluations from Equation (4) will result in a calculated dispersion (standard deviation of the distribution) that is within 10% of the correct analytical uncertainty value
