6 Your Conversion : Rainfall is sometimes measured in "inch-acres", that is the volume of water that corresponds to a one inch depth on an acre of land. The density of water is 1 gram/cubic centimeter. Convert this density to (metric tons)/(inch-acre). Some conversion factors are: 1 metric ton (tonne) = 1000 kg, 1 inch = 2.54 cm, and 1 acre = 4840 square yards. You may work in groups at your table, but each person should turn in a sheet with the solution neatly presented.

7 Estimation: Walking the Appalachian Trail Do the following exercise by yourself, and for now do not share your answers or reasoning with anyone at your table. Clearly label any estimates that you make, e.g. “Estimate length of stride = xxx feet.” Indicate clearly what you are doing. You have 10 minutes. Spring has returned and you decide that with your powerball winnings you will take the summer off and walk the Appalachian Trail. The trail stretches from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Katahdin , Maine.

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
