Effects of component values and measurement errors

Hi currently doing an assignment on problems in DC and AC circuits. I have completed most of it just stuck on one question.

Compare your measured and theoretical values giving reasons for any differences, these should include the effects of component values and measurment errors.

Basically we where giving three tasks each included a different circuit we had to calculate the values first then simulate them on multisim.

Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance

I'd start by writing down the expected range of uncertainty in circuit parameters due to the cumulative effect of all component tolerances. Not a trivial exercise.

You might share some more information on the specific circuits you have under consideration.

I've not used multisim - does it have a component tolerance sweep option?
