ExperimentsUsing data starting with 1950 and projected to 2050, the number of women (in millions) in the workforce is given by the function P = 0.79x+20.86, where x equals the number of years after 1950.
(a) Find the value of P when x=61. Explain what this means.
(b) What value of x represents 2020? Use the model to find the number of women in the workforce in 2020.
(a) The value of P when x=61 is __ million.
(Type an integer or decimal rounded to two decimal places as needed.)
What is the meaning of this value of P?
A. The value of P represents the number of women who will join the work force between the years 1950 and 2011.
B. The value of P represents the number of women in the workforce in the year 1961.
C. The value of P represents the number of women who will join the work force between the years 1900 and 1961.
D. The value of P represents the number of women in the workforce in the year 2011.
(b) The value of x that represents 2020 is x =
The number of women in the workforce in 2020 will be million.
(Type an integer or decimal rounded to two decimal places as needed.).

ExperimentsSuppose the temperature is 75 °F at NYC and 60 °F at Boston, 240 miles away. Suppose the wind is blowing directly from NYC towards Boston at 16 mph. Suppose further that the vertical turbulent heat flux is as follows at Boston: Height above ground 1000m 500 m surface Flux -0.04 Km/s +0.01 Km/s +0.06 Km/s What will the new temperature be at Boston if these conditions continue for 1 hour? What kind of boundary layer would this be? Make whatever reasonable assumptions you need to, and be sure and explain your work. Watch out for units!! If the wind were blowing from Boston to NYC (the opposite direction), with everything else the same, what would your answer be? What kind of boundary layer would this be now?
