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

Given that the uncertainty in the angular velocity is δω = 0.48 rad/s and the uncertainty in x is δx = 0.37 cm, calculate the uncertainty in y (δy) for the following points. The angular velocity of the bowl is 16.3 rad/s and you may ignore the uncertainty in H.

I have no idea how to start this problem, because in the lab lecture, uncertainty was never mentioned. Please help.

2. Relevant equations

I have attached what we were given below.

3. The attempt at a solution

Nothing yet since I don't know how uncertainty factors into the given formulas.
