Problem 11RE

Boiling-point function: Water boils at 212° F at sea level and at 180° F at an elevation of 6000 ft. Assume that the boiling po ? int? varies linearly with altitude ?a. Find the function? ? = f(? ) that describes the dependence. Comment on whether a linear function gives a realistic model.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution 11RE Step 1 We need to find the function B = f(a) that describes the dependence of water boiling point B to the altitude a. We also need to determine if a linear function gives a realistic model of the boiling point function.
