**Approximation A. Differentials**

Goal: Answer Two Questions - How much has y changed? and What is y ‘s new value?

B: Linearization “Make It Linear!”

15
**L(x) = f(a) + f / (a) (x – a)**

Linearization: Linearization: y – y1 = m (x – x1 ) y = y1 + m (x – x1 ) L(x) = f(a) + f / (a) (x – a) The standard linear approximation of f at a The point x = a is the center of the approximation

II. Error

22
**ERROR: There are TWO types of error: A. Error in measurement tools**

- quantity of error - relative error - percent error B. Error in approximation formulas - over or under approximation - Error Bound - formula

23
**A. Error in Measurement Tools**

24
Choose either or 2 .00,000,1 .00,000,2

25
**EXAMPLE 1: Measurement (A)**

Volume and Surface Area: The measurement of the edge of a cube is found to be 12 inches, with a possible error of 0.03 inches. Use differentials to approximate the maximum possible error in computing: the volume of a cube the surface area of a cube find the range of possible measurements in parts (a) and (b).

26
**EXAMPLE 2: Measurement (A)**

Volume and Surface Area: the radius of a sphere is claimed to be inches, with a possible error of .02 inch Use differentials to approximate the maximum possible error in calculating the volume of the sphere. Use differentials to approximate the maximum possible error in calculating the surface area. Determine the relative error and percent error in each of the above.

27
**EXAMPLE 3: Measurement (B) : Tolerance**

Area: The measurement of a side of a square is found to be 15 centimeters. Estimate the maximum allowable percentage error in measuring the side if the error in computing the area cannot exceed 2.5%.

28
**EXAMPLE 4: Measurement (B) : Tolerance**

Circumference The measurement of the circumference of a circle is found to be 56 centimeters. Estimate the maximum allowable percentage error in measuring the circumference if the error in computing the area cannot exceed 3%.

29
**B. Error in Approximation Formulas**

30
**ERROR: Approximation Formulas**

Error = (actual value – approximation) either Pos. or Neg. Error Bound = | actual – approximation | For Linear Approximation: The Error Bound formula is Since the approximation uses the TANGENT LINE the over or under approximation is determined by the CONCAVITY (2ndDerivative Test)

31
**In Calculus dy approximates the change in y using the**

TANGENT LINE. The ERROR depends on distance from center( ) and the bend in the curve ( f ” (x))

32
**Example 5: Approximation**

Error = (actual value – approximation) either Pos. or Neg. Error Bound = | actual – approximation | For Linear Approximation: The Error Bound formula is EX: Find the Error in the linear approximation of
