# Propagation of Uncertainties

A) According to theory, the period T of a simple pendulum is T=2Π√(L/g), where L is the length of the pendulum. If L is measured as L=1.40 +/- 0.01 m, what is the predicated value of T?

b) Would you say that a measured value of T=2.39 +/- 0.01 s is consistent with the theoretical prediction of part (a)?
