The wind chill factor represents the equivalent air temperature at a standard wind speed that would
produce the same heat loss as the given temperature and wind speed. One formula for computing
the equivalent temperature is
if 0 < V < 1.79
= 33- (10.45+10/v-v)(33-t)
if 1.79 < V < 20
33- 1.5958(33 -t) -
if V 20
where V represents the wind speed (in meters per second) and t represents the air temperature.
Compute the wind chill for an air temperature of 15°C and a wind speed of 12 meters per second.
(Round the answer to one decimal place.) Show your work.
