I need help with these type of problems badly.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here's one I'm stuck on.

The period of a simple pendulum with small oscillations is calculated from the forumula T=2*pi*sqrt(L/g)

Where L is the length of the pendulum and g is the acceleration of gravity.

If the values of L and g have errors of at most 0.5% and 0.1% resprectively, use differentials to approx the maximum % error in T.

----------------------------------

Just looking at this makes my head spin. So how do I start this baby off?
