Ilya Miller Honors Statistics Professor Sorenson Based on patterns and analysis, weather prediction should be possible at a very precise level. This is because the atmosphere is a physical system that is controlled by the laws of physics. An example of this is the first law of thermo dynamics and the ideal gas law. Mathematical expressions of these laws can provide complex equations that when entered in accordance with current weather conditions such as atmospheric pressure and humidity readings should hypothetically give us exact concrete weather conditions years in advance. This same idea is applied to make tide prognosis for sailors. This theory was first introduced in the early 20 th century, but with minimal computer capabilities, the complex equations could not be solved and accurate weather predicting were not possible. When computers advanced, simplified versions of these complex equations began to predict weather a couple of days in advance. The accuracy was lost when attempting to predict

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
