A farmer wishes to paint the side of a cylindrical grain silo of height 80 feet and diameter 32 feet. If the paint is to be applied in a coat 1/8 inch thick, use differentials to approximate the volume of paint that the farmer needs to buy. Calculate the actual error in the approximation; what is the relative error when compared to actual volume of paint required?
