Numerical

Solve the numerical example.

Find the percentage error in kinetic energy of a body having mass 60.0 ± 0.3 g moving with a velocity of 25.0 ± 0.1 cm/s.

Solution

Given: m = 60.0 g, v = 25.0 cm/s, Δm = 0.3 g, Δv = 0.1 cm/s

To find: Percentage error in E

Formula: Percentage error in E

= ((triangle"m")/"m" + 2 (triangle"v")/"v") xx 100%

Calculation: From formula,

Percentage error in E = (0.3/60.0 + 2 xx 0.1/25.0) xx 100%

= 1.3 %

The percentage error in energy is 1.3%.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
