Wind Chill Factor

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Wind chill factor, abbreviated as \(T_{wc}\), is an index of the air temperature and the wind velocity.

 

Wind Chill factor formula

\(\large{ T_{wc} = 35.74 + 0.6215 \; T - 35.75\; v^{0.16}  + 0.4275\;T\; v^{0.16} }\)  (fahrenheit)
\(\large{ T_{wc} = 13.12 + 0.6215 \; T - 11.37\; v^{0.16} + 0.3965\;T\; v^{0.16}  }\)  (celsius)

Where:

\(\large{ T_{wc} }\) = wind chill factor

\(\large{ T } \) = temperature

\(\large{ v }\) = wind velocity
