Ive followed the examples, and yet not the result the book gave. The question before this one, same type, and i did get the right answer there.

Would you have a clue why it is not going as planned?

Translation: "Through a resistancewire with the measured resistance R= (1.5+-0.5)Ohm goes an electric current with the measured strength I= (2.5+-0.05)A, During a timespan of t=(10+-0.5)s develops an amount of heat Q=RI^2*t. Give the estimate of the maximum relative deviation in Q."

Here i got the right answer of .42, and yet when doing the exact same thing in assignment 4, i got the wrong answers.

Translation: "Two bodies with mass M and m have a massmidpointdistance r. For the gravitational force between these bodies counts: F=y*M*m/r^2, at which y is the gravitational constant. Give an estimation of the maximum realative deviation in F on ground of the following measurementdata: M=(7.0+-0.05)kg, m=(2.0+-0.02)kg and r=(5.0)+-0.05)m."

I had the answer -0.0029. The books says its wrong, but i cant see what i did wrong.

Translation of the example: "According to the law of Ohm the currentstrength in the stream(/current)circle(circuit) with tension(voltage) U and resistance R is equal to I=U/R. For a given currentcircle((part of a)circuit) is given: U=(30.0+-0.05)Volt and R=(2.5+-0.03)Ohm. Determine the maximum absolute and relative deviation in I.

Solution

The maximum absolute deviation in I is

This gives the currentstrength:

The maximum realtive deviation in I is: .... or about 1.4%"

The answers from the book dont make any sense after using their solution. Its not producing the expected results.

This is the translation by the way: "A battery that has a voltage U, is in series with a resistor R, and a condenser with capacity C. The current strength on a given time "t" in this circuit is given by i=i(t)=U/R*e^-(t/R*C). Determine R and C based on the data given in table 5.6, the current is U=100V."

Dear power users, I have a probably trivial question. How can I import the attached file in Maple? The file consists of a header part with below the header two columns with data. The file coming from a measuring device has no extension and I could not upload it to the forum as it was considered a null file. In order to solve this I gave it a .txt extension but keep in mind that this normally is not present.

Additional question: if the file would have several headers each time followed by 2 data columns, is there an easy way to separate them in a sort of automatic manner?
