    The maximum voltage V was measured using a moving coil meter marked in mm divisions, a deflection of 25 mm representing a potential difference of 0.01 V
    The distance d between the centres of the coils was measured using a metre rule.

    (a) (i) Determine the percentage uncertainties in V and d for the third set of data.
    The third set of data is

    Meter deflection/mm = 32 V/v = 0.0128 d/m = 0.152

    do you know how to calculate percentage uncertainties?
    yes
    absolute uncertainty / value * 100
    I have some answers but I just want to check that they're correct
