2B-6 To determine the volume of a cylinder of radius around 2 and height around 3, about how accurately should the radius and height be measured for the error in the calculated volume not to exceed .1 ? I think there is an error in the solution sheet. Did anyone else have this problem?

I don't recall specifically for this problem if I noticed an error. I would recommend calculating the volume at r=2 and h=3, and then comparing that to the volume calculated at your proposed level of accuracy and see if that fits the margin of error. PS, I recommend providing a link to the pset in the future. Best
