THe circumference of a sphere was measured to be 74.000 cm with a possible error of 0.50000 cm. Use the linear appoximation to estimate the maximum error in the calculated surface area. and estimate the relative error in the calculated surface area.

Please type your subject in the School Subject box. Any other words, including obscure abbreviations, are likely to delay responses from a teacher who knows that subject well.

delta A = 2*[(delta C)/C]*Area
= A/74
(C is the circumference; A is the area)
