the equation is

(1/lambda)=R[(1/n^2final)-(1/n^2initial)]

I've never had to derive anything like this before. Even if someone could tell me HOW to do it, I'll be happy to do it myself.

Thanks

**Trace**, Tuesday, March 8, 2011 at 8:16pmHi Bob, I have to derive the error in the wavelength. I only know how to derive error equations from multiplication or addition/subtraction.

For example, if I needed to derive an arror equation for N=MT it would be deltaN=(deltaM+deltaT)N

So how do I do it for a division question?
