Solving for uncertainty

Postby KimberlySalinas_2A » Thu Oct 13, 2016 9:43 pm

If we are solving for uncertainty and it gives us a number followed by plus or minus and another number (2m +/- .01m), we only use the number after the +/- in the equation after multiplying it by two, correct?

Yes. Even if you took the two into consideration, the uncertainty would still just be .01 times 2 because 2.01-1.99 is still =.02.
