1. n. [Formation Evaluation]

The range of values for a quantity for which the error of a measuring instrument is intended to lie within specified limits. Within this range, the measurement has a well-defined accuracy or applicability. Outside the range, it does not. It is distinct from the operating range, within which the instrument will provide a measurement but the error is not well-defined.
