#### (a) If your speedometer has an uncertainty of 2.0 km/h at a speed of 90 km/h, what is the percent uncertainty? (b) If it has the same percent uncertainty when it reads 60 km/ h, what is the range of speeds you could be going?

**SOLUTION:**

a) The percent uncertainty is computed as

b) The tolerance of the velocity is

Therefore, the range of the velocity is 60±1km/h, or that is 59 to 61 km/h.
