Q=mcT, variables with uncertainties are m and T.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If it were only Q=mT, the %uncertainty of Q would be %uncertainty of m + % uncertainty of T.

But c=constant (no uncertainties), so what is the uncertainty of Q when Q=mcT? Do you just multiply the constant to the %uncertainties of m and T?

What generally happens to constants when working out uncertainties?
