  1. Dec 31, 2005 #1
    This is regarding a problem on approximate uncertainty. How do you just calculate an approxiate uncertainty of a circle when a radius is given?

    What do you want for the circle; circumference or area?

    And tell us exactly what you have been given for the radius, and how (if you have been told) the measurement for the radius was taken.
