15.) In dry air, the temperature decreases by about 0.65 degrees Celsius for each 100 meter increase in altitude.
a.) The temperature in Red Deer, Alberta, is 10 degrees Celsius on a dry day. What is the temperature outside an aircraft 2.8 kilometers above the city.
The picture is not really clear I'm going to explain it:
a.) The answer is -8.2 degrees C at 2.8 km.
How did I get this? I added 10 degrees by negative 18.2 degrees.
How did I get -18.2
*1 km is equal to 1000 m.
b.) The temperature outside an aircraft 1600 meters above Red Deer is -8.5 degrees Celsius. What is the temperature in the city?
b.) The answer is 1.9 degrees Celsius.
How did I get this? I added negative 8.5 and 10.4 degrees together and got 1.9.
How did I get 10.4? (0.65/100)x(1600)
It might not make sense, it was hard for me to explain it. Sorry, if it's late Mr. Backe. I was supposed to be done before 6 but the picture thing was'nt working properly. Like, whenever i upload my pics it doesn't show, it's just a small little box. There was just lot's of problems, I'm sorry it's okay if I get low marks.
