Unformatted text preview: ESC 130C Fall 2011 Homework 1 (20 points maximum) 1: A temperature scale that never quite caught on was formulated by the Austrian chemist Johann Sebastian Farblunget. The reference points on this scale were 0FB, the temperature below which Farblunget's postnasal drip began to bother him, and 1000FB, the boiling point of beer. Conversions between C and FB can be accomplished with the expression: Note: is the value of the temperature in degrees Centigrade and is similarly the value of the temperature in Farblunget degrees. The terms of the equation are dimensionless. Loius Loius, Farblunget's French nephew attempted to follow in his uncle's footsteps by formulating his own temperature scale. He defined the degree Louie using as reference conditions the optimum serving temperature of marinated snails (100L corresponding to 15C) and the temperature at which the elastic in his briefs began to relax (1000L corresponding to 43C). relax (1000L corresponding to 43C)....
