I'm doing a lab and I'm having difficulty calculating error for a linearized set of data. I need to find the error for a set of data that has been curved to a square root. for example my x= 5.00 +- .02 becomes sqrt(5) but what is the error?
The Attempt at a Solution
I am debating whether to convert the original uncertainty to percent uncertainty and just multiply that by the linearized data or to convert the original uncertainty to percent uncertainty, square root the percentage and then multiply that by the linearized data.
