## Homework Statement

I am unsure whether I am calculating the error correctly for the wavelength

given that x=14.3,15.3,16.2,17.1,23.3 all in degrees

## Homework Equations

[tex] \lambda=d*Sin(x) [/tex]

where d is my slit size in meters [tex] \frac {1}{600000}[/tex]

x=measured angle

[tex]\delta x= 0.1 degrees [/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

[tex] \delta\lambda= \frac {|Cos(x)|\delta x}{600000}[/tex]

Now with my given x's they would produce a different error each time is that right or how do I get an over all error?
