I need help with the following problem:
Calculate the upper and lower limits of the volume (in cm^3) of a cylinder 5.2+- 0.1 centimeters long and 1.6+- 0.1 centimeters in diameter. I know I am suppose to plug the numbers in the sphere formula V= pi/4(d) ^2h, but I do not know hot to set the problem up. Note: (subtraction sign suppose to be below the addition symbol, it is plus and minus)

  1. Can't you simply plug in 5.3 for length and 1.7 cm diameter and calculate volume to obtain the upper limit. Then 5.1 long and 1.5 diameter to obtain the lower limit?

  2. I wanted to know can I also use 5.2 and 1.6 for the upper limit?
    So when it says upper and lowest I have to take the highest and lowest length and diameter.
