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

this is regarding propagation of error for a lab i did:

we measured the amplitude of a damped harmonic oscillation over a time period, taking amplitude measurements every 1 second for 14 seconds. when graphed (by excel), the plot has the form of y = Ae^(-gt), where A is the amplitude, t is time and 1/g = the damping time.

how would the uncertainty of g be calculated, if the uncertainties of A and t are known for each measurement?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

i have no idea how to do this.
