Find the maximum possible percentage error in the measurement of force on an object(on mass m) travelling at velocity v in a circle of radius r, if m=(4.0 plus minus 0.1)kg, v=(10 plus minus 0.1)m/s and r=(8.0 plus minus 0.2)m


ANSWER

( 50 ± 3.5) N


SOLUTION
Force$$(f)=\cfrac{mv^2}{r}=\cfrac{4\times(10)^2}{8}=50\\ \therefore\cfrac{\Delta F}{F}=\cfrac{\Delta m}{m}+2(\cfrac{\Delta V}{V})+(\cfrac{\Delta r}{r})\\ \quad=\cfrac{0.1}{4}+2\cfrac{(0.1)}{10}+\cfrac{0.8}{8}\\ \therefore \cfrac{\Delta F}{F}=0.07$$
Percentage error in $$F=25\%+2+2.5\%$$
$$\therefore$$ Percentage error in $$F=7\%$$
Eror in $$\Delta F$$ in $$F=F\times0.07\\ \quad=0\times0.07$$
$$\therefore$$ Error in $$\Delta F$$ in $$F=3.5N$$
$$\therefore F=(50\pm3.5)N$$

Q2 Subjective Medium
In the United States, a doll house has the scale of $$1:12$$ of a real house (that is,each length of the doll house is $$\dfrac{1}{12}$$ that of the real house) and a miniature house (a doll house to fit within a doll house) has the scale of $$1:44$$ of a real house. Suppose a real house has a front length of $$20\ m$$, a depth of $$12\ m$$, a height of $$6.0\ m$$, and a standard sloped roof (vertical triangular faces on the ends) of height $$3.0\ m$$ In cubic meters, what are the volumes of the corresponding 
miniature house?
