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 
20100219 

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 
20070418 

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 
20060627 

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?

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 
20051212 

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 AD
I am only having problem with question E and F. Can you please help me. Thank You.

Modelling monthly temperature with a cosine 
20041225 

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 
20010225 

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) = T3 Answered by Penny Nom. 





Specific heat 
19991222 

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) . . .
