Archimedes Principle

Please help! I just do not even know what I'm doing, and currently waiting for tutors to respond to work with me one on one.  


An unknown fluid could be determined from


ρfl=(T-T'')/(T-T') * ρw


Assume that all of the tensions (T, T',T'') were measured and ρis a known constant.  Give a valid expression for the uncertainty of ρfl

Thanks in advance!

I'm assuming you are familiar with partial derivatives and differentials? You use the differential dρ to approximate the error δρ. It is
dρ = (∂ρ/∂T) dT + (∂ρ/∂T') dT' + (∂ρ/∂T'') dT''
Now just compute the three partial derivatives and substitute in! :)
