Derive an equation for the error in acceleration given the following formula: [tex]a = 2h/t^{2}[/tex]

where a is acceleration, h is height, and t is time.

The attempt at a solution

I was able to come up with the following error equation for acceleration:

[tex]\delta a = a(\delta h/h) + 2t^{2}(\delta t/t)[/tex]

Is this correct?

Thanks
