(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I want to know how to do error propagation on this

c_{Ni}= [-(mcΔt)_{Al}-(mcΔt)_{H2O}]/(mΔt)_{Ni}

m is mass and Δt is change in temperature

2. Relevant equations

δc/c=√(δm/m)^{2}+(δ(Δt)/Δt)^{2}

3. The attempt at a solution

I know the above error prop eq. above applies to c=Q/mΔt

or I think it does.

But I just cant figure it out. The uncertainty for both is about 0.1. I have about 3 different values mass and 2 different values for temperature. What values do I substitute into the error prop equation. Any help would be great. Doing it last minute and its becoming a nightmare.
