 Cooling 2010-03-07 From Lori:If a house is always at 20 degrees celsius. Water (tea) boils at 100 degrees celsius. 5 minutes later the tea was 70 degrees celsius. Use an equation to predict the temperature after 20 minutes.Answered by Tyler Wood. Fahrenheit and celcius 2010-02-19 From Carol:Zack is packing for a trip to Scotland. He read that the average temperature in the Summer is 18degrees C during the day, and 7 degrees during the night. What is the difference between the high and low temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit? (F=9/5C=32)Answered by Lorraine Dame. Fahrenheit and centigrade 2007-04-18 From kyrie:help ? temperature formula: f and c represent degree's of temperature. exact formula: f = 9c / 5 + 32 approx formula: f = 2c + 30 at what temp in c do these formulae give an equal value for f ?Answered by Stephen La Rocque. livinia the housefly finds herself caught in the oven 2006-06-27 From Danielle:livinia the housefly finds herself caught in the oven at the point (0,0,1). the temperature at the points in the oven is given by the function T(x,y,z) = 10 (xe(-y2) + ze(-x2)) where the units are in degrees celsius. (i.)so if livinia begins to move towards the point (2,3,1) at what rate in deg/cm does she find the temp. changing? (ii.)in what direction should she move in order to cool off as rapidly as possible? (iii.)suppose that livinia can fly at a speed of the square root of 2 (cm/sec.) if she moves in the direction of part (ii) at what rate will she find the temp. to be changing? Answered by Penny Nom. Fahrenheit and Celsius 2006-06-12 From Doris:I just know how to do problems with fahrenheit or celcius. Could you show me step by step how to do these? Then I can do it if you can show me each step of the way.Answered by Stephen La Rocque and Penny Nom. The temperature in June 2005-12-12 From Farina:Question: Hi, I was having problem doing this problem. Question: Suppose the temperature during June is normally distributed with the mean= 20 degrees C and standard deviation= 3033 deg. A i the event that temperature is between 21.11 deg C. B is the event that the temperature is over 25Ged C. Event C is the temperature is below freezing point. Find the following probabilities: A) P(A) b) P(B) C) P(C) D) P(C given B) E) P(neither A nor B) F) find the expected number of days in June when event B will occur. I know how to find questions A-D I am only having problem with question E and F. Can you please help me. Thank You. Answered by Penny Nom. Modelling monthly temperature with a cosine 2004-12-25 From Regis:The average monthly temperature for a location in Ontario as a function of month number can be modelled using the equation y = a cos[k(t + b)] + d.Answered by Harley Weston. Solve for two variables 2001-02-25 From A student:How do I solve for %1 and %2 in the following formula when T1, T2 and T3 are known? %1 and %2 are ratios of the same element, therefore %1 + %2 = 100% (%1 x T1) + (%2 x T2) = T3Answered by Penny Nom. Specific heat 1999-12-22 From Irena:In transferring 1260J of heat to water, the temperature of 0.20 kg of mercury falls 50 K. Calculate the specific heat capacity of mercury using the equation C= Q/(m)(delta t) i know that Q= -1260J because it's loosing heat and m= 0.2kg and since i have to use 'C i have to convert Kelvins into Celsius (i also know that 'C has to be negative since it looses heat)...Answered by Harley Weston. Temperatures 1999-09-27 From Eula:How do you cahnge farenheit degrees to celsius degrees?Answered by Penny Nom.
