Think about what you're doing with the mass and diameter to find the pressure. Are you adding them? Multiplying them? Squaring them? Do you know what happens to the uncertainty when you mutliply two quantities or raise them to powers?
4. yes i knw that whn we multiply we add the percentage uncertainities
which is the uncertainity/true value x100
raise thm to powers idk :|
