CALCULATING TEMPERATURE AND ALTITUDES

The following formulas will be used in this article, commit these formulas to your memory.

One: If we need to find the temperature we'll use the below formula:

Two: If we need to find the Altitude (height above the sea level), we'll use the below formula:

Qn 1:

The temperature at the sea level is 30°C, what will be the temperature at City M 1300 metres?

Solution:

 

 

(1300 – 0)/100  x 0.6°

= 13 x 0.6°C

= 7.8°C

The temperature of the higher altitude must be subtracted.

Take the given temperature which is 30°C then subtract 7.8°C from 30°C.

The answer is 22.2°C

 

Qn 2:

The temperature in Town P 260m above the sea level is 28°C, what will be the temperature 2350 metres above the sea level?

Solution:

(2350 – 260)/100  x 0.6°

= 20.9 x 0.6°C

= 12.54°C

The temperature of the higher altitude must be subtracted.

Take the given temperature which is 28°C then subtract 12.54°C from 28°C.

The answer is 15.46°C

 

Qn 3:

If on The mountain Q 3200metres high, the temperature is 10.5°C. what will be the temperature at the sea level?

Solution

At the sea level means that altitude is 0 metre:

using our formula:

= (3200 – 0)/100  x 0.6°

= 19.2°C

with  lower altitude, we have to add the temperature we got with what we were given in the question:

what we got is 19.2°C, and what we were given in the question is 10.5°C

therefore:

10.5°C  +  19.2°C  = 29.7°C

The temperature at the sea level is 29.7°C
