## Homework Statement

The period T of a simple pendulum with small oscillations is calculated from the

formula T = 2pie (L / g)^1/2 . Suppose that measurements of L and g have errors of at

most 0.5% and 0.1% respectively. Use differentials to approximate the maximum

percentage error in the calculated value of T.

## The Attempt at a Solution

dT = (dT/dL)dL + (dT/dg)dg

= 2pie (1/2g(L/g)^1/2) dL + 2pie (1/2g(L/g^2)^1/2) dg

i don't know how am i going to proceed..
