hi

do we need to put error bar on the standard curve?

For what application of the standard curve?

to determine the x= concentration value by substitute y= absorbance of compound with unknown concentration in the equation y=mx+c

Probably not then, if you are doing some sort of linear regression it inherently comes with an error estimate. Though if you want to publish the curve, then it is a good idea to add the error bars.
