As the energies at which the elementary structure of matter is studied increased, the emphasis in scattering experiments has shifted from detecting individual hadrons to fragmenting quarks and gluons, which manifest themselves as particle jets. In this paper, we investigate and quantify some systematic effects that affect the precision with which the properties of the fragmenting constituents can be determined. We concentrate on the calorimeters that are used to measure the energies, and in particular on how the non-compensating nature of a calorimeter affects the energy measurement of different types of partons.
