Ive followed the examples, and yet not the result the book gave. The question before this one, same type, and i did get the right answer there.
Would you have a clue why it is not going as planned?
Translation: "Through a resistancewire with the measured resistance R= (1.5+-0.5)Ohm goes an electric current with the measured strength I= (2.5+-0.05)A, During a timespan of t=(10+-0.5)s develops an amount of heat Q=RI^2*t. Give the estimate of the maximum relative deviation in Q."
Here i got the right answer of .42, and yet when doing the exact same thing in assignment 4, i got the wrong answers.
Translation: "Two bodies with mass M and m have a massmidpointdistance r. For the gravitational force between these bodies counts: F=y*M*m/r^2, at which y is the gravitational constant. Give an estimation of the maximum realative deviation in F on ground of the following measurementdata: M=(7.0+-0.05)kg, m=(2.0+-0.02)kg and r=(5.0)+-0.05)m."
I had the answer -0.0029. The books says its wrong, but i cant see what i did wrong.
Translation of the example: "According to the law of Ohm the currentstrength in the stream(/current)circle(circuit) with tension(voltage) U and resistance R is equal to I=U/R. For a given currentcircle((part of a)circuit) is given: U=(30.0+-0.05)Volt and R=(2.5+-0.03)Ohm. Determine the maximum absolute and relative deviation in I.
The maximum absolute deviation in I is
This gives the currentstrength:
The maximum realtive deviation in I is: .... or about 1.4%"
Could somebody tell me what i am doing wrong?
