Barometric pressure in the eye of a hurricane is 0.91 atm (27.2 in. of mercury). How does the level of the ocean surface under the eye compare with the level under a distant fair-weather region where the pressure is 1.0 atm?
Notes Week 1 Physics Modules 1.1-2.1 1.1 The Nature of Physics Physics is not just a collection of facts and principles, but it’s the process by which we understand the Universe. Is a theory ever concrete and unchangeable No, theories are subject to change according to observations. 1.2 Solving Physics Problems The way physics is set up, we need to be able to learn problem-solving strategies. I SEE Identify, set up, execute, and evaluate. a Identify i Identify the target variables of the problem (the quantities you want to find) b Set Up i Set up the problem, choose the appropriate equations and decide if you are going to need them. Sketch a graph if you need to.
