Zero Tare is the operation of removing an unwanted component of a measurement so that only the required quantity is measured.
For example when measuring the weight of a laden truck, first you would measure the laden weight and then tare the measurement so that it reads zero, so that when the laden truck is next measured only the net weight of the load is measured.
