The table shows the temperatures T (in degrees Fahrenheit) at which water boils at selected pressures p (in pounds per square inch). A model that approximates the datais: T=87.97 + 34.96 In p + 7.91 p a) Use a graphing untility to plot the data and graph the model in the same veiwing window. How well does the model fit the data? b) Use the graph to estimate the pressure at which the boiling point of water is  300 F. c) Calculate T when the pressure is 74 pounds per square inch. Verify your answer graphically.

a) To approximate the data T=87.97 + 3496 p + 7.91 p and the table provided in the question shown below. Pressure, pTemperature5162.2410193.2114.696 (1 atm)212.0020227.9630250.3340267.2560292.7180312.03100327.81

Graph: Sketch the graph using graphing utility.

Step 1: Press WINDOW button to access the Window editor.

Step 2: Press Y= button.

Step 3: Enter the data 87.97 + 3496 In p + 7.91 p which is required to graph. Step 4: Press GRAPH button to graph the function. The graph is obtained as: image Interpretation: From the graph it is observed that graph shows the curve.

b) Calculate: From the above graph the pressure required is 67.29 pounds per square inch.

c) Calculation: T=87.97 + 3496 In p + 7.91 p
T(74)=87.97 + 3496 In(74) + 7.91 74
T(74)=306.4845

The article “Modeling Sediment and Water Column Interactions for Hydrophobic Pollutants” (Water Research, 1984: 1169-1174) suggests the uniform distribution on the interval (7.5, 20) as a model for depth (cm) of the bioturbation layer in sediment in a certain region. a. What are the mean and variance of depth? b. What is the cdf of depth? c. What is the probability that observed depth is at most 10? Between 10 and 15? d. What is the probability that the observed depth is within 1 standard deviation of the mean value? Within 2 standard deviations?

Aurora is planning to participate in an event at her school's field day that requires her to complete tasks at various stations in the fastest time possible. To prepare for the event, she is practicing and keeping track of her time to complete each station. The x-coordinate is the station number, and the y-coordinate is the time in minutes since the start of the race that she completed the task. (1,3),(2,6),(3,12),(4,24)
Part A: Is this data modeling an algebraic sequence or a geometric sequence? Explain your answer.
Part B: Use a recursive formula to determine the time she will complete station 5.
Part C: Use an explicit formula to find the time she will complete the 9th station.

Oil spreading over water
The book says that oil spreads over water due to the greater surface tension of water as compared to oil, so the comparatively stronger water film stretches the oil surface and makes it spread... But if this is the case, doesn't that mean that the oil layer will go on spreading indefinitely(even if it gets one molecule thick)until it covers the whole surface, because at any point the surface tension of water is still greater than oil.... But this does not happen, oil spreads only until it makes a particular contact angle with the water surface.
So is the explanation given in the book a bit faulty or am I getting the whole thing wrong? Someone please help...

Carol and Alina play soccer for a local college team. Based on anecdotal evidence, they think that there is a difference in a player success rate of taking penalty kicks with their dominant foot compared to their non-dominant foot. They would like to test this hypothesis with an experiment. Carol arranges for each of the 11 starting players on her team to take ten penalty kicks with their dominant foot and ten penalty kicks with their non dominant foot and records the data. Using the same data values, describe two distributions that would be more supportive of the hypothesis.
