Given that the velocity of the falling parachutist can be computed by,
Use a first-order error analysis to estimate the error of v and t = 6, if g = 9.8 and m = 50 but c = 12.5 + or - 1.5.
I'm having a tough time starting this one. Can someone nudge me in the right direction?
EDIT: I just realized I posted this is the wrong section, it's clearly not an ODE can someone please move it?
Here's what I came up with.
I'm pretty sure I must be misunderstanding something because I dont see any nonconstant terms.
We know the values for every variable so we should just end up with a number, no?
Where did I go wrong?
EDIT: Don't worry about the -1706.03 in the first line, it's not supposed to be there.
