7) If the radius of a sphere is measured as 9 m with an error of 0.03 m, then find the approximate error in calculating its surface area.

Answers (1)

Error in radius of sphere (\Delta r) = 0.03 m
The surface area of sphere = 4\pi r^2
Error in surface area (\Delta A) 
dA = \frac{dA}{dr}.\Delta r\\ dA = 8\pi r .\Delta r \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ (\because A = 4\pi r^2, r =9 \ and \ \Delta r = 0.03 )\\ dA = 8\pi (9) (0.03)\\ dA= 2.16\pi
Hence,  the approximate error in its surface area is 2.16\pi \ m^2
