Question: 11 two independent variables x and y have been measured...

Question details

11. Two independent variables, x and y, have been measured as: x 8.0 t 0.3 and y 4.0 t 0.1 Use these values to calculateqx/y+x2y. Write the answer for q in the standard form. 12. We know for uncertainties in a power that if q-x, the fractional uncertainty in q is twice that in x: Consider the following fallacious argument: We can regard x2 as x times x, so q = (x)(x), therefore, using the fractional uncertainty method: Sx This conclusion is wrong. In a few sentences, explain why.
