(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The expression for the slope of the graph of [tex](m_{1} - m_{2})[/tex] versus a is given by [tex]m = (m_{1} + m_{2} + m_{p})/g[/tex]. What is the expression for the error in the mass of the pulley, [tex]m_{P}[/tex]?

3. The attempt at a solution

My answer is [tex]\delta_{p} = g\delta_{m} + \delta_{m1} + \delta_{m2}[/tex]

I don't think this is right. Can someone show me where I went wrong?
