Unformatted text preview: Hints for Challenge Problem #7 Use your knowledge of the direction tornadoes generally travel (e.g., Fig. 19E in text). Use Table 19.3 to determine the tornados winds on each side of the street, based on the damage on each side. Your best estimate of the wind on each side of the street is the Expected Wind Speed in Table 19.3 corresponding to the damage on each side of the street. The winds on the right side of the path are rotational speed plus forward speed. The winds on the left side of the path are rotational speed minus forward speed. Hence the forward speed is half the difference between the wind speeds on the two sides of the path. Your answer for the forward speed should be between 10 mph and 50 mph. (Note: We will check to see that you arrived at your answer legitimately.)...
