PHYCS 3730/6720 Lab Exercise
Reading and references:
Tables of numbers are easier to read if the columns line up. Here we
practice with numeric output format.
Answer file Mylab13.txt.
Exercise 1. Temperature conversion
Write a Python script for printing a two-column table to your screen
for converting fever-thermometer temperatures from degrees Centigrade
to Farenheit. Do this for temperatures from 35 C to 40 C in
increments of 0.2 degrees. Put headers "C", and "F" over the columns.
Display all temperatures with one digit after the decimal point. When
you are done, copy your code and your table to the exercise file for
In case you have forgotten, F = 32 + C*9/5.
Exercise 2. Prettifying your Assignment 4 output
Modify your code truss.py from Assignment 4 so it prints a neat
table of values for the tensions/compressions on each bridge member.
Print them in a single column with no digits after the decimal point.
Note, if your solution for the tensions/compressions is an n x 1 numpy
matrix, you will need to give two subscripts to specify the matrix
element. Otherwise, Python's "format" will complain.
In your answer file, copy just the part of your code that does the
printing, and also copy the resulting table.
