2. First steps in C Exercises 1. Agreement occurs at a temperature x where x = (5 / 9)( x - 32) . Solving this equation gives x = - 40 , so the scales agree at -40 degrees C or -40 degrees F. Annual mean temperatures are less than this for a large part of Antarctica. 2. The first few lines should look like 0 -17.78 255.37 459.67 10 -12.22 260.93 469.67 ... The temperature 60 F corresponds to about 288 . 7 K , and about 520 Rankine. 3. My code is below. I get 17.7 m, 20.8 m, and 49.2 m for 60 km/h, 65 km/h, and 100 km/h. The RTA numbers are more than three times larger — presumably they are being conservative and taking into account the possibility of skidding (the μ is for static friction), wet conditions etc., which involve a smaller μ . / * stopping.c * Program to calculate the stopping distance of a car. * / #include <stdio.h> #define MU 0.8 #define G 9.8 int main() { float d, ukph, umps; printf("Initial speed in km/h? "); scanf("%f", &ukph); umps = ukph
