NOTE:
Your answers will be graded on the clarity of your writing as well as the correctness of the
answer. You must show your work to receive full credit. Any work that you submit must be your own.
1. A measurement of the diameter of a cylinder has an uncertainty (standard deviation) of 2 mm. How
many measurements must be made so that the diameter can be estimated with an uncertainty of only
0.5 mm?
2. Assume that
X
and
Y
are independent measurements with standard deviations
σ
X
= 0
.
2 and
σ
Y
= 0
.
2.
Find the standard deviations of the following quantities:
(a) 3
X
(b)
X

Y
(c) 2
X
+ 3
Y
3. Again assume that
X
and
Y
