# Physics307L:Schedule/Week 7 agenda

### From OpenWetWare

### Rough draft of final report due beginning of Week 12

## Today, error propagation

### As a function of one variable

### Kirstin and Brian speed of light

- First, show how to use LINEST -- we'll derive this maybe next week
- y = q(x) ... with uncertainty in x, how to propagate?

### Approximation when it's a function of one variable (show plot from Taylor)

### As a function of more than one variable

### Millikan

- Derive approx. w/ Taylor's

### Examples from wikipedia

- What to do when it's complicated? Sensitivity
