Chapter 1, Problem 1.9P
To determine

The possible range (magnitude) of each listed elemental error if the ambient temperature of a transducer chosen to measure a nominal pressure of 500 cm H2 O is expected to vary between 18°C and 25°C during tests.

From Table 1.1

Input range 0-1000 cm H2 O
Excitation   ±15 V DC
Output Range 0-5 V
Linearity Error   ±0.5 % FSO
Hysteresis Error Less than   ±0.15% FSO
Sensitivity Error   ±0.25 % of reading
Thermal Sensitivity Error   ±0.02 % /°Cof reading
Thermal Zero Drift   ±0.02 % /°C FSO
Temperature Range 0-50°C
