The following are some recommended self-assessment questions for the lesson called The standard error rectangle and standard error ellipse (by review of some familiar examples).
We looked in this topic at the concept of the point error ellipse and at the equations for , , and . Can you derive the equations for the semi-minor and semi-major axes of the relative ellipse? You don’t need to derive the equation for . (Hint: You can use error propagation to make short(er) work of it.)
