I have a problem in which I was given some data to plot on a graph. Then i use a linear curve fit to display a line and get an equation and correlation coefficient (R). How do I discuss error in terms of accuracy, precision, random errors, systematic errors, trend line R^2 value, and uncertainty. I'm not sure where I begin with this problem. My equation is y = 13.2x - 24.11 with an R^2 value of 0.94. Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
