What is range for the ME data set? ___21_____to__62______ What is the mode for the ME data set? ……………………………………………… _____30_____

3. 4.

What is the mean for the ME data set? ____38.5______ What is the sample standard deviation for the ME data set?......... ___15.6_______

Sample SD = (1225.5/5)^.5 = 15.6 (note: X^.5 means take the square root of X and in this case X = (1225.5/5)).

5. What is the median for the ME data set? ______32.5__________

Prepare an appropriate graph comparing the two data sets. Include labels, scales, units, titles, etc The best graph: Bar graph comparing the mean infant mortality rates for SA and ME. Any other type graph for this problem would not be appropriate. Include a title such as: Mean Infant Mortality Rates for SA and ME and include the units for infant mortality rate and a proper scale on the vertical axis.


11. _____a______
12. A 100 kilogram tree log that has been completely dried contains about 45 kilograms of stored carbon. How many kilograms of carbon dioxide were removed from the atmosphere to produce the carbon in a 550 kilogram (dry mass) tree log? a. 225 kilograms b. more than 225 kilograms drawn from the data. c. less than 225 kilograms d. No conclusion can be

13. A pine tree has a diameter of 24 cm at 1.4 meters above ground. How much carbon is contained the tree’s biomass above ground (calculation)? Place your answer here (Trees and Carbon Lab) M = mass of carbon in the dried wood above ground logM = -1.25 + 2.66*log(D) logM = -1.25 + (2.66)*log(24) = -1.25 + (2.66)(1.38) = -1.25 + 3.67 = logM = 2.42 M = antilog (2.42) = 10^2.42 = 263 kg ________263 kg____________ 14. If a pine tree with a diameter of 200. cm were harvested and completely burned, how much carbon dioxide (kilograms) would be released into the atmosphere (calculation)? Place your answer here: (Based on lab #7, Trees and Carbon Lab) LogM = -1.41 + (2.76)(Log10D)


= -1.41 + (2.76)(Log10(24)) = -1.41 + 6.35 LogM = 4.94 AntilogM = M = 87096

M = 87096 kg of dry tree biomass above ground Each kg of dry tree corresponds to 1.65 kg of CO2 Taken together,

Mass of CO2 = (M)(1.65) = (87096)(1.65) = 143700 kg CO2 released into the atmosphere when this tree is burned.

Matching: Each letter may be used once, more than once, or not at all. If an answer has two letters (example cb.) place both letters on the blank. Example: If the best answer for #15 were ce. None of these, then you’d do this. 15. ___ce____. a. First Law of Thermodynamics b. Independent variable c. Joule d. Statistics e. Dependent variable. ab. Standard deviation ac. Line graphs ad. Hypothesis ae. Bar graphs bc. Kyoto Protocol bd. Second Law of Thermodynamics be. Scatter plot cb. Ozone cd. Smog ce. sugar . ee. None of these 15. ___A____ Conservation of Energy Principle 16. ___C___ SI unit of energy 17. ___BD___ Puts limits on the amount of usable energy that can be transferred 18. ___AD___Educated guess 19. ___B___ The factor that is intentionally made different at the beginning of the experiment 20. ___E____ The kind of data that is being collected 21. ___D___ They allow us to summarize large volumes of mathematical information 22. ___AB___ Useful because it allows us to examine the dispersion of a data set quickly and easily. 23. ___CB____ Especially harmful to lung tissue. 24. ___CD____ Combination of fog and smoke 25. ___AE___If you can break your data into discrete groups use __?__ graphs. 26. __AC____ If your data are continuous use __?__ graphs. 27. __BE____ When you need to graph two variables against one another to determine their relationship use __?__ graphs.


28. __BC____ International governments throughout the 1990's began discussing ways to remedy the possible harm that has been done by greenhouse gases. 29. ___EE_____ Thermal inversion (synonym) 30. _____CE____These are linked together to form cellulose.
