A cylindrical tank is constructed to have a diameter of 5 meters and a height of 20 meters. Find the error in the volume if:
(a) the diameter is exact but the height is 20.1 meters
(b) the height is exact, but the diameter is 5.1 meters.
volume = π(2.5)^2(20) = 392.699
a) vol = π(2.5)^2(20.1) = 394.663
You do b), ok?
let me know what you get.
