Kilometers per liter to miles per gallon (US). b. Specific Heat in kJ/kgC to Btu/lbmF. Example: Converting viscosity in 2 ft s lbf ⋅ to 2 m s N ⋅ ⎟ ⎠ ⎞ ⎜ ⎝ ⎛ ⋅ = ⎟ ⎟ ⎠ ⎞ ⎜ ⎜ ⎝ ⎛ ⎟ ⎟ ⎠ ⎞ ⎜ ⎜ ⎝ ⎛ ⎟ ⎟ ⎠ ⎞ ⎜ ⎜ ⎝ ⎛ ⋅ = ⎟ ⎟ ⎠ ⎞ ⎜ ⎜ ⎝ ⎛ ⋅ 2 2 2 2 88 . 47 3048 . 1 22481 . 1 1 1 m s N m ft lbf N ft s lbf ft s lbf Problem 2) The time taken for a computer packet to travel from Cambridge UK to Cambridge MA follows a Gaussian distribution. 6.8% of the packets take over 200 ms to make the trip, and 3% take under 140 ms. Find the mean and standard deviation of the distribution. Problem 3) Sawmill A produces boards whose lengths follow a Gaussian distribution with a mean of 209.4 cm and a standard deviation of 5 cm. A board is accepted if it is longer than 200 cm, but it is rejected otherwise. Sawmill B produces boards with the same standard cm, but it is rejected otherwise....
