Question: pressure p in millibars and the wind speed w go...

Question details

pressure p (in millibars) and the wind speed w Go ta measured during various tropical systems in the Atlantic 20. Hurricanes The following data represent the Wind Speed (knots), w 50 60 45 45 40 Atmospheric Pressure (millibars), ρ 993 994 997 1003 1004 1000 994 942 1006 942 986 983 940 966 982 105 40 120 50 70 120 100 Source: National Hurricane Center (a) Use a graphing utility to draw a scatter diagram of the data (b) Use a graphing utility to find the line of best fit thr treating atmospheric pressure as the independent variae models the relation between atmospheric pressure and wind speed. Express the model using functic notation (c) Interpret the slope (d) Predict the wind speed of a tropical storm if the atmospheric pressure measures 990 millibars (e) What is the atmospheric pressure of a hurricane if the wind speed is 85 knots?
