Tim Lin BEE 1510: Introduction to Computer Programming Laboratory Exercise 03: Soil Specific Heat Algorithm 9/18/08 [ ---- ] is put into code depending on which function 1. Enter Comments BEE 1510: Introduction to Computer Programming Laboratory Exercise 03: Soil Specific Heat Timothy Lin TA: Celina Input Arguments f_s is the fraction of soil in the soil sample, 0.3 to 0.8 f_w is the fraction of water in the soil sample, 0 to 0.4 Output Parameter cp_min is the specific heat, J/kg-K, of mineral soil, calculated as the weighted average of dry soil and water fractions. The calculation assumes the air fraction of the soil contributes negligibly to the specific heat 2. Inputs i. Define Variables [cp_min = specific heat of moist mineral soil in J/kg-K] [cp_org = specific heat of moist organic soil in J/kg-K] f_w = fraction water
