The number of chirps per minute of a snowy tree cricket (Oecanthus fultoni) at several temperatures is 178 at 25Â°C, 126 at 20.3Â°C, and 100 at 17.3Â°C.
a) Find the activation energy for the chirping process GRAPHICALLY.
b) Find the chirping rate to be expected at 14.3Â°C.
c) An old â€œwives taleâ€ says that you can determine the temperature from the chirp rate because the Fahrenheit temperature equals 40 plus the number of cricket chirps in 13 seconds. How well does this actually work?
