$35.6 \pm0.1$ degrees Celsius The uncertainty is $\pm$ 0.1 degrees Celsius

Work Step by Step

We begin by converting 96.1 F to Celsius: C = (96.1-32)*5/9=35.6 degrees Celsius We continue by converting the lower and upper bounds the temperature may be: C = (96.3-32)*5/9=35.7 degrees Celsius C = (95.9-32)*5/9=35.5 degrees Celsius Therefore the uncertainty is 0.1 degrees Celsius.
