Lesson: Combining Uncertainties High School PhysicsPhysics
In this lesson, we will learn how to find the uncertainties in the values of quantities that can be calculated from two or more measured values.
A wire carries a current of for a time of . What is the percent uncertainty of the charge that passes through the wire in that time?
Three objects have masses of , , and . What is the uncertainty in the total mass of the three objects?
Cupronickel is an alloy made of copper and nickel. If of cupronickel contains of copper, what is the uncertainty in the amount of nickel it contains?
