1.94: a) The maximum and minimum areas are ( L + l ) ( W + w ) = LW + lW + Lw , ( L l ) ( W w ) = LW lW Lw , where the common terms wl have been omitted. The area and its uncertainty are then WL ± ( lW + Lw ), so the uncertainty in the area is a = lW + Lw . b) The fractional uncertainty in the area is , W w L l WL Wl lW A a + = + = the sum of the fractional uncertainties in the length and width. c) The similar calculation to find the uncertainty
