Uncertainty of temperatur and pressure

  1. Dec 5, 2015 #1
    Somebody who can explain the question
    How big a error must there be at the temperature for the error on the pressure measurement is not more than 5 % ?

    thanks in advance

    What do you think would be an appropriate answer? How could you go about finding the result of changing pressure by 5%? (Use one of the formulae that you would have in your toolbox.)

    I think that one could use the ideal gas equation, but are not quite sure
