If the radius of a sphere is measured as 9 m with an error of 0.03 m, then find the approximate error in calculating in surface area
Let r be the radius of the sphere and Δr be the error in measuring the radius.
r = 9 m and Δr = 0.03 m
Now, the surface area of the sphere (S) is given by,
S = 4πr2
Hence, the approximate error in calculating the surface area is 2.16π m2.
