comment Wisdom of the crowd in estimative calculation
@joriki yes, I think it is safe to assume that the estimates for the individual quantities are normally distributed

Awesome, thanks!! Could you add this into your answer so I can except it?! (comments tend to be less permanent)

Thanks! I corrected the equations in my post. Unfortunately, I was more sloppy in typing up the post then I was in my derivation, in which I did have the correct expressions. So my question still holds

comment Approximations of the incomplete elliptic integral of the second kind
@J.M. I need the approximation to determine $l=f(\phi)$ such that I can rewrite it in a form $\phi=f(l)$. With the exact elliptic integral that doesn't seem possible.

comment Approximations of the incomplete elliptic integral of the second kind
@J.M. the use of pade approximants seems to me to be a fairly involved approach in which I have to determine all the prefactors, which I would probably need a computer for so then I don't see the point in using the approximation over the 'real' incomplete elliptic integral

comment Approximations of the incomplete elliptic integral of the second kind
I hadn't seen it yet, but after taking a look it doesn't get much clearer for me. I can see that Eq 21 in the link is an approximation, but I am not sure how I would go about applying it?

comment Detect values in array that are statistically inconsistent
That's a good point. I guess you have to know quite a bit about the physics/chemistry of what you're measuring to be able to set a sensible absolute or relative threshold.
