1. Climate Sensitivity math problem

Would I put this into a ratio? If so how would I set this up?
2. Climate Sensitivity math problem

How would I go about finding this then?
3. 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?
4. 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...
5. 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%?
6. Climate Sensitivity math problem

What do you mean by the right units? And how would I find this as a percentage?
7. 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?
8. Climate Sensitivity math problem

So would this mean I would do .5K x .06W/m^2 ?
9. Climate Sensitivity math problem

The minimum value for solar forcing would be .06 right? But how would I know the temperature difference?
10. 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...
11. Energy content of gasoline and hydrogen comparative math question

I don't understand what this means though? Is this all the information I need?
12. Energy content of gasoline and hydrogen comparative math question

Wait I realized that is only for 1 gallon so I got 28530 MJ
13. 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?
14. 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?
15. Energy content of gasoline and hydrogen comparative math question

Would I just divide these two?
