2. The wind chill factor represents the equivalent air temperature at a standard wind speed that would
produce the same hear loss as the given temperature and wind speed. One formula for computing the
equivalent temperature is

where v represents the wind speed (in meters per second) and t represents the air temperature
Compute the wind chill for the following.
a) An air temperature of 10°C and a wind speed of 1 meter per second.
b)
An air temperature of 10°C and a wind speed of 5 meters per second.
c) An air temperature of 10°C and a wind speed of 25 meters per second.
