Error Analysis Trig

  1. Jan 12, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    how would you differentaite the function of theta respect to o and h ?
    im very new to calculus, i would appretiate if someone giave me a very large step because
    im in a hurry to understand this and the sun is soon to rise please..

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    well the only part i know about error analysis is simple equations like centripetal equations.
    but square rooting and this is just too much.

    can anyone please guide me through the whole way? and if you dont mind please show me a big step.

    division would become multipliation with engative exponent right?

    d(theta)=1 * sqrt(1-(o/h)^-2)
