Homework Help: Error Analysis

  1. Oct 10, 2008 #1
    Just a quick question about error analysis.

    Moles of Calcium ions in 10 mL = 6.0 x 10-4 ± 0.5 x 10^-5 mols

    I'm suppose to scale this number to Moles of Calcium ions in 250mL.
    So when I multiply by 25, do I multiply the error value as well? Or does it remain the same?

    Number of moles does change, so error does as well.
