### Homework Question

On problem 1B.27, it gives the indeterminacy of velocity (Δv) as "5.00 ± 5.0 m.s^-1." Why is the indeterminacy of velocity 5 m.s^-1, and not 10 m.s^-1, since it is ± 5.0?

### Re: Homework Question

do you mean the indeterminacy of velocity instead of the change in velocity?

### Re: Homework Question

haha okay well then the indeterminacy would be just the ± 5.00 because that's what the measured amount is varied by? idk. i see what your saying but i think this is just how it is
