    How do you calculate the absolute uncertainty of p when you are told:
    the value of p = 1.26kg and the percentage uncertainty = 3%

    Absolute uncertainty is just the uncertainty as a number with a unit - in this case kg. You are told that the percentage uncertainty is 3%. Can you work out what that is in terms of kg using the value for p?
