What is exact?

What is exact? Here is my definition:


Exact is the attribute of being precisely accurate


I believe that exact shapes do not exist in physical reality. For example, imagine a circle created using a high-tech computer with extremely fine ink. This circle would not be an exact circle because there would be some ink molecules slightly out of place.
