The Q is:

A copper cylinder is 5.82 +/- 0.06 cm long and has a radius of 2.53 +/- 0.04 cm. Using the appropraite formula,

Question Details

a) Find the total surface area of the cylinder and the standard error in the area .

b) Find the volume of the cylinder and the standard error in the volume.

c) Given that the density of copper is 8.96cm^-3, find the mass of the cylinder

We are to use error propogation formulas for this.

For part a and b I calculated the normals and for b- volume and used the formulae for product rules to calculate the error in volume and found it to be 2.88.

Can someone guide me through the process because I have the formulas and I plug in the values but I am not sure If i am right or not.

Thank you.
