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

Finding uncertainty in magnetic field strength. [itex]N=2[/itex], [itex]i=1.00\pm0.005[/itex] A, [itex]R=0.1[/itex] m, [itex]\tan \theta=0.49\pm0.008[/itex]

2. Relevant equations

The equation

[itex]B_{coil}=\frac{\mu_0 N i}{2 R \tan \theta}[/itex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I am assuming that the radius R and number of turns N are exact.

I know how to find the error when the equation is X=a/b

Should I find this error and scale it by

[itex]\frac{\mu_0 N}{2 R}[/itex]?
