Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Here, L= 3600 inches and A = 0.0625 inches.

We will use the formula

Error in length= L x delta T 

Error in Area= A x 2x delta T

Hence, Error in Length= 3600 x 5 x 10^-6 x 130=2.34

Error in Area= 0.0625 x 2 x 5 x 10^-6 x 130=0.000081

Yes, the error depends on the distance being measured.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

The error depends on the length but fractional error or percentage error does not depends on length
