1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Calculate the following, expressing all results with uncertainties both in absolute and relative (percentage) form:
a) A + B
b) A x B
c) Asin(theta)
d) A^2 / Bcos(theta)
The relevant formula for the absolute uncertainty is below, but i have no idea how to use it! The teacher just sort of gave us the assignment without much explanation.. I know that it uses something called partial derivatives, could someone explain how to find that?
