Homework Help: Dual sensitivity problem involving transducer (ECE)

  1. Apr 11, 2005 #1
    Hi,

    I have a question about calculating the error of the transducer.

    A pressure transducer exhibits a temperature sensitivity of 0.05 units per degree Celsius and a pressure sensitivity of 5 units per MPa. If the temperature changes 30 degrees celsius during a measurement of a pressure of 200 MPa, determine the error resulting from the dual sensitivity of the transducer.

    I looked in the book for an hour and i cant seem to find any equations in order to solve problem. If anyone can help me, that would be greatly appreciated. thank you in advance.
