    Climate Sensitivity math problem

    Would I put this into a ratio? If so how would I set this up?

    Climate Sensitivity math problem

    How would I go about finding this then?

    Climate Sensitivity math problem

    So I would use the maximum amount to find the ration? This would be .12K right? How would I then use the .9 C. This is also in Celsius so would I need to convert?

    Methane and CO2 atmospheric lifetime math problem

    Homework Statement On a per-molecule basis, methane is 26 times more effective as an infrared absorber than is CO2. Calculate the corresponding ratio on a per-unit-mass basis, and compare it with the 20-year GWP for methane. What's the reason for any discrepncy you find? (CO2 atmospheric...

    Climate Sensitivity math problem

    Would I do .06 W/m^2 x .5K =.03K and .24 W/m^2 x .5K= .12 K and then do .03K/.12 K= .25K or 25%?

    Climate Sensitivity math problem

    What do you mean by the right units? And how would I find this as a percentage?

    Climate Sensitivity math problem

    So for the maximum forcing would I do .5K x .24 W/m^2? Is there more to this problem though?

    Climate Sensitivity math problem

    So would this mean I would do .5K x .06W/m^2 ?

    Climate Sensitivity math problem

    The minimum value for solar forcing would be .06 right? But how would I know the temperature difference?

    Climate Sensitivity math problem

    Homework Statement Using a climate sensitivity of 0.5K per watt per square meter, estimate how much of the .9 c global temperature increase since 1900 could be due to solar forcing who value is the range of .06 to .24 w/m2 Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I am not...

    Energy content of gasoline and hydrogen comparative math question

    I don't understand what this means though? Is this all the information I need?

    Energy content of gasoline and hydrogen comparative math question

    Wait I realized that is only for 1 gallon so I got 28530 MJ

    Energy content of gasoline and hydrogen comparative math question

    When I did this I got 1902.214 MJ. Is this right? If so how would I go about doing part B?

    Energy content of gasoline and hydrogen comparative math question

    When I did this as a ratio I got 133,155 g of CO2 but thats still not the answer in the back of the book is there another step?
