In summary, the conversation is about creating a function for temperature (T) based on depth (L) in order to graph it. The person providing the summary also mentions filling in numbers for constants and choosing a range for L to see a graph. The conversation ends with the problem being solved.

Hello,

so I have equartion for temperature profile (T) based on depth (L),
View attachment 7594

L will vary let's say from 0 to 500 and I want to create a function dependent on T and L, so I can plot a graf.

Hi mk747pe,

What you have is already a function T(L).
If we fill in some numbers, we can graph it.
See for instance here, where I filled in $1$ or $-1$ for every constant, and I picked a range for $L$ such that we see a reasonable graph.

Or did you have something else in mind? (Wondering)

Thats exactly what I needed. Thank you very much.
Problem solved :)

## What is a temperature profile function?

A temperature profile function, T(L), is a mathematical representation of the distribution of temperature with depth, L, in a body of water or other medium. It describes how the temperature changes as you go deeper into the medium.

## Why is the depth limited to 0-500 in the temperature profile function?

The depth range of 0-500 is commonly used because it covers the majority of the water column in most bodies of water. Going deeper than 500 meters may not significantly impact the temperature profile and can be more difficult to measure.

## How is the temperature profile function measured or calculated?

The temperature profile function can be measured using temperature probes or sensors that are lowered into the water at different depths. It can also be calculated based on data collected from satellite measurements or by analyzing water samples taken at different depths.

## What factors can influence the shape of the temperature profile function?

The temperature profile function can be influenced by a variety of factors, including solar radiation, wind, ocean currents, and the physical properties of the medium itself. It can also be affected by human activities such as pollution and climate change.

## What is the significance of studying the temperature profile function?

Studying the temperature profile function can provide valuable information about the health of our oceans and other bodies of water. It can help scientists understand the movement and mixing of water, the distribution of marine life, and the effects of climate change. It can also inform important decisions related to fisheries, marine transportation, and coastal management.
