a) Use ∆r= ±0.03 to approximate the corresponding error in the volume of the can by using differentials (or the linear approximation)

b) The fraction ∆r/r is called the relative error of percentage error in the radius. If the relative error in the radius is z, approximate the corresponding relative error in the volume.

(a) If r becomes r + ∆r ,

V + ∆V = 3 pi (r + ∆r)^3

=3 pi [r^3+ 3r^2 ∆r + 3r(∆r)^2 + (∆r)^3]

V [1 +3(∆r)/r +3(∆r)^2/r^2 +(∆r)^3/r^3]

Since ∆r/r <<1, this linearizes to

V(1 + 3 ∆r/r)

So ∆V = 3V *(∆r/r)

(b) ∆V/V = 3z
