Question: the wave heights h in the open sea depend on...

Question details

The wave heights h in the open sea depend on the speed v of the wind and the length of time t that the wind has beern blowing at that speed. Values of the function h = f(v, t) are recorded in feet in the table below. TABLE 4 Duration (hours) f501520 30 4050 10 15 4 55555 20 30 13 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 19 404 2 25 28333 33 50 19 29 3640 45 48 50 37 47 54 62769 60 (a) What is the value of f(40, 20)? What is its meaning? According to the table, f(40, 20) - the open sea for 20 hours, it will create waves with estimated heights of , which means that if a 40-knot wind has been blowing in feet. (b) What is the meaning of the function of h = 15, t)? Describe the behavior of this function 0 we fix v and t, resulting in a constant value 0 we fix v-15 and allow t to vary, resulting in an equation of one variable 0 we fix t-15 and allow v to vary, resulting in an equation of one variable O We allow v and t to vary, resulting in a function of two variables (c) What is the meaning of the function h- f(v, 15)? Describe the behavior of this function. 0 we fix v and t, resulting in a constant value 0 we fix v-15 and allow t to vary, resulting in an equation of one variable ( we fix t-15 and allow v to vary, resulting in an equation of one variable ( we allow v and t to vary, resulting in a function of two variables
